JAPAN: Shoe Chain Kawano To Spend $1.7m On New Stores
Women's footwear manufacturer Kawano on Thursday announced plans to invest $1.7 million in eight new stores.
The Kobe-based firm, which targets the 20 to 40-year-old age group, said its decision follows the success of its Barkley Mrunouchi store in Tokyo which is on course to smash its full-year sales target.
The new stores will take its retail network to 18 outlets. A further four stores are planned for 2004.
