Harvey Nichols has announced the opening of a brand new store in Doha, the capital of Qatar.
Located in Doha Festival City shopping centre, the new store boasts 80,000sq ft of retail space over three floors, showcasing an edit of womenswear, menswear, accessories, beauty, childrenswear and lifestyle departments.
“We are delighted to be opening a store in Doha,” co-chief operating officers Daniela Rinaldi and Manju Malhotra said.
“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’ new Doha flagship – opened in partnership with Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Group of Companies – was selected because Qatar has one of the world’s highest levels of disposable income and Qataris are the biggest buyers of luxury goods in the Middle East.
The Doha store also expands the British retailer’s network which covers key locations across UK and Ireland, as well as international markets such as Hong Kong, Dubai, Riyadh, Istanbul, Ankara and Kuwait.
“Harvey Nichols will add a great shopping experience to Qataris and expats alike,” Al Mana Group chairman and managing director Hisham Saleh Al Mana said.
“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.”
