Christmas has come early for the fashion lovers. Earlier today, LC Waikiki, one of the world’s leading fashion retail brands, opened its first store at Acacia Mall in Kampala. Opening this store makes Uganda the second country in East Africa where LC Waikiki expands its brand as part of its Africa growth strategy and in line with its mission ‘Everyone Deserves to Dress Well’.
The grand opening of the Ugandan flagship store had various guests in attendance including Kerem Alp, The Republic of Turkey’s Ambassador to Uganda.
There was a show case of some of their clothes by models like Judith Heard and some models from Crystal models. LC Waikiki is not just a story but also doubles as a clothing line.
The retail giant is currently operating in 47 countries, 312 different cities in 3 continents and has almost 50,000 employees. Uganda is the latest country to join their portfolio. Entry into the Ugandan market is seen as a step towards increasing LC Waikiki’s footprint in Africa. The Turkish brand’s target is to have more than 1500 stores all over the world by the end of 2023.
LC Waikiki has set the goal of affordable fashion beyond Turkish borders by connecting with various cultures in different markets. They are committed to providing customers from all age groups with products that are suitable for their style and budget.
Founded in 1988, LC Waikiki continues to grow for 32 years both in Turkey and abroad. It opened its first store outside Turkey in 2009 in Romania, and since then has expanded rapidly across the globe.
