Fortnum & Mason to open Hong Kong store

British retail and hospitality brand Fortnum & Mason is to open a new store and restaurant in Hong Kong, its first outside the UK. Opening in September, it will be located in K11 MUSEA, a new retail destination within the US$2.6bn Victoria Dockside development.

The opening in in response to growing international demand for Fortnum’s products and services. It will seek to complement the brand’s current partnerships across Asia, with retailers including Lane Crawford in Hong Kong, Isetan Mitsukoshi in Japan, and Shinsegae in South Korea.

The 650 sq m (7,000 sq ft) will offer a store, featuring an edited selection of the retailer’s most popular ranges, and an upstairs restaurant with harbour views.

“Fortnum’s is a business which, for centuries, has thrived on delivering a sense of pleasure for our customers. Building on our 47 years of experience in Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong, our latest expansion in Asia is an important next step for us, as we extend our reach further across the world,” says Fortnum & Mason chairman Kate Hobhouse.

“We have seen significant appetite for the Fortnum’s brand and products in the region, with impressive year-on-year sales growth. We are therefore incredibly proud to continue our record of investment and growth by expanding our business into new markets, and reinforcing our support for amazing producers and suppliers and creating new job opportunities.”


K11 MUSEA will form the anchor of a 278,709 sq m (3m sq ft) art and district created to revitalise Hong Kong’s harbour front. Architects James Corner and Forth Bagley have led the scheme, in collaboration with more than 100 international and local architects, artists and designers.

“We are excited to establish our presence in Asia in such a pioneering development. K11 MUSEA, a unique retail destination in Hong Kong, speaks to the growing consumer demand for immersive experiences of art, culture and commerce” says Fortnum & Mason CEO Ewan Venters. “As a business with creativity and innovation at its core, we believe that our partnership with K11 MUSEA is a natural fit for us.”
