The global department store summit unveils finalists up for its award

May 9, 2012

Following London and New York, the global department store summit will be held in Paris on 10th and 11th May. The Department Store Award will be handed to one of the three finalists - Macy’s (USA), Selfridges (Great Britain) and Woolworths (South Africa) – on the opening evening.

Printemps was included amongst the list of ten proposed to the jury. However, as the local partner of the Intercontinental Group of Department Stores – one of the founders of the project – its not being included amongst the finals will stop rumours of favouritism circulating. The winner will join Selfridges, who won in 2010, and Bloomingdale’s, the first to receive the award which was launched in 2008.

For the third edition of the summit and third awarding of the “Department Store of the Year” prize, the jury is made up of Dawn Clark (Vice-President Global Concepts and International Store Design at Starbucks), Fred Douglas (Director of Leasing at Aldar Properties), Bjarne Mumm (Founder and CEO of Jefri Investor) and Peter Williams (Asos).
