ABISTE specializes in fashion jewelry sourcing its products from designated factories in Japan, Europe, America, and Asia. In December 2016, ABISTE had 180 directly managed stores and 120 licensed stores located in leading hotels throughout Japan. Our store locations follow a unique style in which we associate with leading hotels, forming a marketing tact that is rarely seen both in Japan and worldwide.
ABISTE prides itself on range of products targeting sophisticated adult females. We place great emphasis on perfect shop atmosphere by using interior design that best compliments the hotel atmosphere. Our directly managed stores range diversely in size from 20 ㎡ to 100 ㎡ and may come under any of 5 different names. We are able to open multiple stores under one building by operating 5 different brands. Our strength and distinction includes flexible operation systems based on customer needs and circumstances.
Recently we opened 8 directly managed stores in Ginza, Aoyama, Hiroo and Roppongi areas well known for luxury shopping in Japan. Additionally our broad range of products, superior quality and design have caught attention of apparel manufactures, mail order companies, television shopping stations and cosmetics companies, many of our products have been incorporated into OEM products.
It is convenient for people who live in Japan that we have directly managed shops, ABISTE WEB SHOP, and business partner to enjoy our products fully. However, outside Japan customers currently have limited access to enjoy shopping with us. We have heard from many customers who bought our products in directly managed shops that they would like to have ABISTE shops in their countries. This provides us with many exciting opportunities to expand worldwide.
ABISTE has spread outside Japan from 2007 starting in Hawaii and Hong Kong. In 2012 our directly managed shops opened stores in Taiwan and Thailand. In 2017 we have decided to open stores in the Philippines. In the future we are planning to locate our franchise shops and directly managed shops in Mainland America, Middle East, and Europe. ABISTE shops will be opened not only at hotels, but also at stand-alone stores, department stores, and shopping malls outside Japan.
Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in franchise opportunity outside Japan. We are very pleased to welcome you as one of our shop franchisees to gain popular acceptance worldwide.
In 2016 we celebrated our 40th Anniversary. We are confident that ABISTE will continue to satisfy the need of our customers and keep everlasting dreams alive in the years to come.
