Plans are already starting to be put into action after Jimbag partnered up with Japanese sports and outdoor distributor Aifa late last month. With a number of major department stores agreeing to feature the brand in their branches, this is just the beginning of a three-year plan to expose Jimbag to the Far East market.
Bustling with shoppers from all over the world, Seibu Ikebukuro is one of Japan's most premier stores. From 18th July 2018, Jimbag will feature in the massive 14-story Seibu Ikebukuro Flagship Store, one of the largest department stores in the world. This mega-complex, visited by 70 million people a year, is directly connected to the Ikebukuro Station that serves as a hub for northwest Tokyo.
Hankyu Umeda: From 12th September 2018 Jimbag will have a pop-up shop in Hankyu Umeda, a department store that covers a total area of 84,000 square meters - one of Japan's largest department stores in its class. Established in 1929, the main store reopened in 2012 after an extensive seven-year rebuilding project - making this the hub for sophisticated fashions and lifestyle trends to feature.
Hankyu Nishinomiya: From 19th September 2018 Jimbag will also feature in the Nishinomiya branch of the Hankyu chain of department stores. They will also host a British fair from 24th October 2018 where Jimbag has the pleasure of featuring our selection of bags to the Japanese audience.
A Jimbag pop-up shop will feature in the major Japanese department store Matsuzakaya. The Nagoya branch has grown to become one of the most extensive in Japan, and this is the location where the Jimbag will be on display to the Far East market in pursuit of moulding the British born company into a global success. Trading since 1611, it is classed as one of the oldest department stores in the world. Browsing the best selection of goods in Nagoya, the Matsuzakaya store will welcome Jimbag to sit amongst some of the biggest labels in fashion.
