Flying Tiger expands rapidly in Belgium

Danish chain Flying Tiger is to open two new stores in Belgium, one on 4 April in Brussels and one on 10 April in Antwerp. These stores will be the Danish store chain's sixth and seventh store in Belgium.

Brussels and Antwerp, with Hasselt to follow

The new Flying Tiger in Brussels (on the Guldenvlieslaan) was only announced several days ago, but will open its doors shortly. Just days later, the store in Antwerp will open on the main shopping street Meir. A third store will open in Hasselt in the near future, as work has started over there as well.

 

Flying Tiger's first Belgian store opened in the Wijnegem Shopping Center in November 2013 and the company, which is called Tiger in other countries, aims to open 12 stores in its first 5 years in Belgium. Currently, it has more than 400 stores in 25 countries.
