Williams-Sonoma Opens in Kuwait

Williams-Sonoma opened a store in Kuwait, the nameplate's first store outside North America, last month. The 11,000-square-foot store is located at The Avenues in Kuwait, one of the Middle East's largest shopping venues, and is in partnership with international retail franchise operator M.H. Alshaya.
     In 2010, M.H. Alshaya partnered with Williams-Sonoma Inc. to launch the first franchise operation of Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids stores in the Middle East. This relationship has extended to include the Williams-Sonoma brand, which will launch for the first time outside North America, in Kuwait.
