ALDO reopens with a spacious design conceptualized with the customer in mind to create the ultimate shopping experience.
Dubai, September 10, 2013 – Welcome to the new look of ALDO. A world leader in the fashion footwear industry, ALDO reopens its doors in a brand new 5,984 sq ft space in IBN Battuta Mall. The spacious concept store aims to bridge the gap between retailers and consumers, offering an elevated and enhanced shopping experience. A public grand opening will be held on Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013.
The art of shopping
Striking a balance between creative design and functional layout, the fresh take on furniture and presentation was intended to make the shopping experience easy to navigate. The expansive pathway invites UAE customers to comfortably explore the vast collections of fashion footwear and accessories for men and women.
A new experiential space
The ALDO façade is an invitation to explore the brand's universe. The new concept is inspired by the original ALDO logo, represented by a triangle. The designers have made the icon a focal point in the center of the ceiling, where its fragments are thoughtfully integrated into everything from the wooden floor to the shelving and furniture.
Modern. Accessible. Integrated.
“ALDO is one of the only retailers in the world to use uniform architecture, design and visual presentation worldwide. Whether you are in New York, Singapore, Dubai or Paris, you know when you are in an ALDO store,' says Norman Jaskolka, President of ALDO Group International. 'The new store in IBN Battuta is based on an original concept, but like our other stores, it conveys ALDO as a modern, accessible and integrated brand. This new concept was developed to adapt to the expectations of consumers, who are increasingly well connected and more mindful of the way products are presented. We feel we've created an innovative store experience that both satisfies those needs and exceeds expectations.'
