1) Opening in East Point City, a large shopping mall in the emerging residential area of Tseung Kwan O.
The new @cosme store will open in East Point City, a shopping mall in Tseung Kwan O, an upcoming residential area located in the eastern New Territories that has seen rapid development as a commuter town in recent years. As a large shopping mall, visitors can enjoy not only shopping but also experience a variety of entertainment. With Hong Kong University of Science and Technology nearby, it has become a popular shopping spot
for a variety of age groups, from trend-conscious consumers to young students.
2) Offering new brands while retaining the characteristics of existing stores
As with its existing stores, istyle will offer a fun shopping experience where every customer can discover his/her dream cosmetics, offering free testing of almost all products in store and counseling services for skin and makeup concerns. The products are all Japanese brands, and in addition to the popular brands from istyle’s other Hong Kong stores, HOMEI, COVERMARK, and bare minerals are also scheduled to join the lineup.
2. istyle’s first community-based store rooted in the local trade area
Since its initial foray into Hong Kong in June this year, istyle has opened four @cosme stores in succession, the latest being this East Point City branch. The three previous stores were opened in areas frequented by both Hong Kong residents and tourists from mainland China. However a majority of shoppers at Tseung Kwan O, the location of the fourth store, are local shoppers and the new store is istyle’s first “community-based store” in Hong Kong. By increasing customer engagement through closer communication with local shoppers, the company is taking on new challenges in Hong Kong.
