We are very proud to announce that Zippy hasstrengthened its international presence by opening a new flagship store atDubai Mall (one of the world’s most relevant shopping centres) and one store atDubai Marina Mall. This is our first international flagship store and we considerthis opening an important landmark in Zippy’s development, as it is located inthe largest and most populated city in the UAE, with around 2.7 millioninhabitants, in a shopping centre that is considered an internationalbenchmark.
Following these openings in Dubai, we now haveover 30 stores in the Middle East, across Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Lebanon, Qatarand the United Arab Emirates. In a global perspective, we have exceeded 100stores worldwide, in more than 20 countries within four continents. In fact,our international sales turnover has already surpassed sales in our originalmarket, Portugal, as a result of our ongoing investment in expanding Zippy’spresence into increasingly more geographies.
This is the positive note with which we wish torestate that we will continue to tread our growth avenues focused on a uniquevalue proposition, combining a wide range of products for children with thebest quality-price relation in the market. This strategy has allowed Zippy notonly to improve customer loyalty, but also to be present in the everyday lifeof increasingly more families, in a growing number of countries across theentire world.
