In Westfield Milan, Italy’s future largest mall
Galeries Lafayette, the iconic Paris-based department store, announce that they have reached an agreement with Westfield and Gruppo Stilo - two leading international mall specialists - to open a wholly-owned store in Milan within Westfield Milan, the expected largest mall in Italy.
The future Galeries Lafayette flagship store (18,000 sqm, four floors) will be one of the main attractions of Westfield Milan, expected to open in 2017/2018. Located 20 minutes away from the centre of Milan and 10 minutes away from the airport, this prestigious mall will include more than 175,000 sqm of sales area, including 300 stores and 50 restaurants, cinemas and other entertainments.
After the recent openings in Berlin, Casablanca, Dubai, Jakarta and Beijing, and adding to the planned openings in Doha and Istanbul, this new Italian project will reinforce Galeries Lafayette’s international network. This Milan project is Galeries Lafayette’s second European opening outside France.
Over the last 18 months, Galeries Lafayette significantly increased the rhythm of their international openings. They claim that this new Italian project confirms the international attractiveness of the brand, as well as its ability to offer its unique fashion concept to an increasingly diversified audience.
