Michael Kors to open first Macau store at Sands Cotai Central

Luxury clothing and accessory brand Michael Kors will be unveiling its first store in Macau this April, with the opening of Sands Cotai Central.

Located in the duty-free Shoppes Cotai Central, the Lifestyle flagship store with over 2,000 square feet of retail space will open its doors to Macao shoppers for the first time on 11 April, as part of Asia’s Biggest Launch Party in 2012 – the opening celebrations of Sands China’s newest integrated resort.

The award-winning luxury retailer made its debut in 1981, and its signature style has since been featured around the world on magazine covers and on the red carpet, adorning some of the world’s most well-known personalities. The Michael Kors store at Sands Cotai Central is the fourth in China, following recent openings in Tianjin, Hong Kong and Shanghai in 2011.

"Michael Kors provides shoppers with an exceptional luxury line of clothing and accessories, and we are very excited to be the first in Macao to host one of their outstanding stores," said David Sylvester, Senior Vice President of Retail Asia, Las Vegas Sands Corp.

"Shoppes Cotai will be a duty-free shopper’s paradise, with over 600 stores in our three interconnected luxury shopping destinations; Michael Kors is a great addition to our ever-expanding portfolio of shops presenting the very best brands and the latest fashion the world has on offer – all in one fantastic integrated city destination," he added.

When complete, Shoppes Cotai – consisting of The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian Macao, The Shoppes at Four Seasons in The Plaza Macao and Shoppes Cotai Central at Sands Cotai Central – will be the largest duty-free luxury shopping experience in Macao, with the capacity to offer over 600 retailers to choose from. At the absolute centre of the Cotai Strip, Sands Cotai Central will provide business travellers and leisure-seekers pathways to adventure, fun and fortune, with affordable luxury hotels, international live entertainment, luxury duty-free shopping, Asia’s leading conferences and conventions, gaming excitement and world-class cuisine – all within reach.
