Luxury department store Harvey Nichols has opened its latest branch in the Doha Festival City shopping mall in Qatar.
Set over three floors, the 80,000 sq ft retail space sells men’s, women’s, and children’s fashion, as well as beauty and lifestyle products.
Qataris are the biggest spenders on luxury products in the Middle East, and have one of the world’s highest levels of disposable income.
Hisham Saleh Al Mana, chairman and managing director of SH Al Mana Group who partnered with Harvey Nichols on the new store, said: “Harvey Nichols will add a great shopping experience to Qataris and expats alike. We truly believe in the growth of our beloved country and with the FIFA 2022 World Cup, Qatar is paving the way to becoming the center of attraction in the Gulf Region. Partnering with prestigious brands such as Harvey Nichols is a key factor of success as offering luxury retail products addresses our consumer needs.”
Co-chief operating officers of Harvey Nichols Daniela Rinaldi and Manju Malhotra said: “We are delighted to be opening a store in Doha. We know there is an appetite for our brand in the region so we are excited to be able to offer the discerning customer in Qatar our exclusive edit of designer brands.”
Harvey Nichols already has international stores located in Hong Kong, Dubai, Riyadh, Istanbul, Ankara and Kuwait, in addition to its UK stores.
