Our first new concept store has already opened at Crescent Mall and another two points-of-sales, at the Takashimaya Department Store and the Lotte Department Store, will open in Hanoi by the end of the first quarter. FitFlop will also be available through the Supersports Vietnam chain, and will be launched on popular online marketplaces like Lazada and Shopee”.
