Hudson’s Bay, Retail
New market, new challenges
A mere sixteen months after Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) announced plans to enter the Dutch market, no less than ten Hudson’s Bay stores opened across the country. Industry experts and consumers alike were unanimous in their praise of the new, exciting shopping experience.
Finding fitting solutions
Adamant on getting everything exactly right from the very start, HBC went in search of a strong and highly experienced partner on whom they could rely to fulfil this major overhaul within the very stringent time limits. They found this partner in MVRO. The turnkey realisation of the Hudson’s Bay stores required perfect process management. With many different parties involved, it was essential that processes were set out – right down to the very last detail – before building work commenced. Even the slightest oversight or mistake could have resulted in costly delays. Together we managed to nail it in all aspects.
Three new Hudson’s Bay stores open in Amersfoort, Enschede and Haarlem
March saw the opening of three new Hudson’s Bay stores in the Dutch cities of Amersfoort, Enschede and Haarlem. The number of Hudson’s Bay department stores in the Netherlands now totals thirteen. MVRO has been responsible for the total rebuild of the three new stores.
