Pola steps into Hong Kong

Japan’s Pola Inc has opened a cosmetic counter in Harvey Nichols

Japan’s Pola Inc began retail operations in Hong Kong this month, opening a cosmetic counter in Harvey Nichols department store in Pacific Place. Pola Cosmetics (HK) Co Ltd is a subsidiary of Pola Inc. The company has had a presence in Hong Kong for over 50 years as a regional office overseeing its sales promotion and business development in Hong Kong, Macao and southern China.

Setting up the Hong Kong retail outlet in Harvey Nichols marks a significant strategic expansion in the region and also indicates Pola’s views about the long term potential of Hong Kong's premium cosmetics and skin care market.

At the opening, Pola Cosmetics (HK) Co Ltd MD Toshiyuki Kirihara said: "Pola operates in 15 countries. We strongly believe that Hong Kong is the right place to promote our brand image in Asia, especially the Greater China region, and a retail presence in Hong Kong will help us in becoming an international brand."
