Spread across approximately 850sq.m, the LIXIL flagship store is located at 46 Bich Cau street, a convenient location in a bustling district of the Vietnamese capital.
This gives LIXIL a perfect location to not only interact with customers who are looking for products, but also general consumers who need to raise their level of engagement with such high-quality products.
Commenting on the launch, Masahiko Hiramoto, country general manager of LIXIL-Vietnam, said, “Vietnam’s transformation over the last decade can be seen in the rising demand for products which are high in quality, design, and technology. As the number of high income households doubled and the size of the economy almost tripled, consumers aspire for products that enhance their living experiences.”
“Our aim is to work towards the desires of our consumers’ and offer them a space where they can interact with the best of what LIXIL has to offer and in the process be inspired to make their homes better. We look forward to welcoming all those who seek innovative designs and technology in the space of bathroom, kitchen, and housing.”
The showroom opens at a time when the Vietnamese real estate market looks positive. High-end and luxury apartment sales are increasing, while the building materials and sanitary ware market is going through a positive recovery.
