Abercrombie & Fitch to launch in Dubai
Mar '13
UAE based Majid Al Futtaim (MAF) has inked a deal to launch US’s leading fashion retailer Abercrombie & Fitch’s brand by 2014.
Following the deal, MAF would open the US brand’s first outlet in Dubai next year.
Inking of the deal with the US retailer is a substantiation of MAF’s insight into region’s retail space, Ahmed Galal Ismail, CEO of MAF Ventures said in a statement.
The US brand with its iconic image would augment MAF’s extensive brand portfolio and strengthen its image as a preferred strategic alliance for world’s most reputed brands.
Abercrombie & Fitch presently operates over 266 brand outlets in the US and 19 across the globe.  
Meanwhile, established in 1992, MAF has successfully introduced the concepts of hypermarkets and shopping malls to the GCC region, and has established itself as the leading retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East and North Africa region.
