- The US brand, which is famous for its fashion show featuring “Angels” and pop stars like Ariana Grande, opened a shop in 2017
- The company is the latest affected by a drop in tourism due to Covid-19 lockdowns and protests
Victoria’s Secret has closed its Hong Kong flagship store. The massive branch of the US underwear brand opened in Causeway Bay in 2017, with the company signing a 10-year lease.
There was a printed note on the door today that read, “We regret to inform you that we have closed the Victoria’s Secret Flagship Store at Causeway Bay in Hong Kong. You will be available to shop online on our international website.”
Causeway Bay is home to some of the most expensive commercial properties in the world.
The four-storey shop had previously been home to teen-friendly fashion brand Forever 21.
Businesses in Hong Kong have suffered over the last 12 months as tourists stopped coming, first due to the anti-government protests, and then when borders were closed to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
Other shops that have closed in Hong Kong in the last several months include US fashion brand J. Crew and Greek jewellery shop Folli Folli.
