“Giordano is strengthening its franchise business and remains steadfast in pursuing new markets – our recent ventures in the African continent lays testament to this”. He concluded, “Our global expansion continues. We have clear plans to open further new markets in Africa, and will also be looking to add to our existing store network in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and in South East Asia,” he added.
“Giordano has a long, rich history in providing relevant, essential and timeless fashion for all. Ghana has witnessed a surge in demand for international fashion labels, and with Giordano having over 2,100 stores around the world. We are excited to bring the brand to Ghana and West Africa,” said Ramesh M. Sadhwani, Joint Group Managing Director of Melcom.
