s expanded over the past decade and now have 3 300 stores across 54 countries with a growth target to increase its number of stores by 10 to 15% per year.
“One of the first in Sub-Saharan Africa, this is certainly a coup for the V&A Waterfront, and is in line with our strategy to be first to market with new and different retailers to broaden our current retail offering and keep it relevant for our visitors,” says David Green, V&A Waterfront CEO.
October 17 2015 sees the opening of H&M Waterfront with late night extended shopping hours promised.
