Expansion of Louis Vuitton at the Mall at Millenia
April 29, 2010
ORLANDO, FLA. -- APRIL 29, 2010 -- Since opening its doors for business in 2002, the 1.2-million square foot, multi award-winning Mall at Millenia, (including the Design Award of the International Council of Shopping Centers, ICSC), has firmly established itself as one of America’s most successful, luxurious, shopping venues.
Among the many upscale, national and international retailers is Louis Vuitton, one of the mall’s most revered shopping destinations. A measure of the success of Louis Vuitton at The Mall at Millenia is its upcoming expansion from 3,511 square feet to 5,040 square feet, due for completion in May, 2010. “We are delighted that Louis Vuitton, one of the world’s leading luxury brands, is expanding here,” said Brenda Lounsberry, marketing director for the mall. “It is a clear indication of their success in Orlando. That’s good news for all of our retailers and for our consumer market regions, which include our own local community, and visitors from all over North and South America, Europe, and the Middle East.”
The history of Louis Vuitton is what dreams are made of. In 1854, Louis Vuitton opened his first store in Paris, France. By 1989 there were 130 stores worldwide, and today, that number continues to grow. The success of Louis Vuitton is due to its founder’s adherence to providing a product line of hand-made, luxurious, classically stylish luggage that would endure the rigors of global travel and everyday use. To this day all Louis Vuitton products continue to be hand-made. The 2009 Millward Brown Study placed Louis Vuitton as one the most valuable brands in the world.
