Juicy Couture to open new stores in Abu Dhabi, Doha by end-2014
Juicy Couture, an American brand known for its women’s tracksuits, has announced it is expanding in the Middle East with the opening of two stores, one in Abu Dhabi and one in Doha, by the year-end, Gulf News has reported. The announcement follows the brand’s recent decision to close all of its US stores. Juicy Couture is owned by Authentic Brands Group (ABG), a brand development and licensing company, and operates in the Middle East through a partnership with Majid Al Futtaim (MAF) Fashion, the retailing arm of Dubai-based Majid Al Futtaim. The store in Abu Dhabi will open in Yas Mall in November, while the one in Doha, its first in Qatar, will open in Lagoona Mall in December.
