Sri Lankan clothing retailer expands to the Maldives

July 29, 2009 (LBO) – Sri Lankan menswear retailer Hameedia has expanded into the neighbouring Maldive islands, opening a showroom in the capital Male. “It involves a careful selection of fabrics and accessories, studying both national and international market trends, and, the demanding task of marketing.” Hameedia Managing Director Fouzul Hameed said the company was looking to expand further and establish a presence in other regional markets as well.

The company had opened a showroom in Chennai in south India in 2004.

“Taking our own brands to international markets is quite a different exercise,” Hameed said in a statement.
