Toronto - Seven years after Umbra unveiled its first flagship store here, the housewares brand is preparing for the June 11 opening of its new concept store in Shanghai.
"Umbra began producing its original home décor designs in Canada over thirty-three years ago. I am proud to say that we have stayed true to the original idea of functional, original, beautiful products that often have a sense of fun and excitement," said Les Mandelbaum, president and co-founder of Umbra Ltd.
The 1,700-sq.-ft. store will be located in Shanghai's Jinqiao Mall at 3611 Zhangyang Road and will carry kitchen and bath accessories as well as gift and homeware products.
"Our designers hail from around the world, which has helped us create a truly international style. We hope that we'll be as popular here in China as we are in over 100 other countries," said Paul Rowan, co-founder and vp of Inspiration.
