Tiffany & Co. plans to open two boutiques in recently renovated department stores in Tokyo's main commercial and luxury shopping areas, as well as one boutique in Hiroshima's premier department store by end of second quarter 2007.
On March 2, 2007 the jeweler will open a boutique in Tokyo's Seibu department store, 21-1 Udagawa-cho in Shibuya; another boutique will open in the Takashimaya store at 5-24-2 Sendagaya in Shinjuku in late April. In addition, a new Tiffany watch corner is expected to soon open within the new watch department on the store's remodeled 4th floor. Also, Hiroshima boutique, located in the Fukuya department store, 6-26 Ebisu-cho Naka-ku, will open in late April. The new boutiques bring the total number of Tiffany's Japan locations to 55.
"The newly designed stores offer Tiffany & Co. Japan wonderful new opportunities to delight our customers and make new friends," said Michael C. Christ, president of Tiffany & Co. Japan Inc. "The opportunity to join Seibu in their successful location in Shibuya will represent our first store in that vital Tokyo market. And the exciting new remodel of the Takashimaya Times Square in Shinjuku will be a perfect showcase for Tiffany design. Included in the new Shinjuku renovation will be the first exclusive Tiffany watch corner in Japan. Finally, it is a privilege to join the historic Fukuya Department Store in Hiroshima and the fine retail business they have built over the years."
