CommentsAndrey Yazykov, CEO of Samsonite Russia: "For the opening of the flagship store of the brand TUMI in Moscow, we considered exclusively the very center of the city. Here, in the neighborhood of ancient manors, museums and the Bolshoi Theater, we will be able to create a chamber atmosphere that perfectly matches our brand, which, we are sure, will attract the attention of both our regular customers and many guests of Moscow. The store will feature a wide selection of accessories and exclusive models, including the new collection A3, which was launched by Lenny and Zoey Kravitz. Our plans include active expansion: in addition to the flagship on Bolshaya Dmitrovka, we plan to open a store in the Atrium shopping mall in March, and we are also negotiating the launch of several outlets in the second half of 2019.
