Entrance to Prague to start Harmont & Blaine’s expansion in CE?

Harmont & Blaine, an Italian casual wear retailer, entered the Czech Republic in October 2013. Its first Czech store is located in Prague’s downtown at 28 Rijna Street, an extension of Na Prikope Street – the prime high-street location in the country. The shop spans on four floors and covers a total area of 1,000 m² and is the largest Harmont & Blaine outlet worldwide.

The opening in the Czech Republic is paving the way for the company to other markets in Central Europe (the firm has not established its presence in Poland or Slovakia, for instance). It is, however, present in Russia, where it plans further openings.
