Shiseido has signed a strategic partnership with Marka, the first public joint stock retail operator in the UAE, which will see the first Shiseido regional boutique opened in the UAE.

Signalling Marka’s first entry into the skincare and beauty industry, the partnership will see a Shiseido Beauty Boutique open at City Walk Boulevard, Dubai, which will sell Shiseido branded products.

The opening of the boutique at Dubai’s premier outdoor retail space signifies further global expansion for the Japanese beauty giant, while also being a continuation of Marka’s aggressive expansion over the past few years.
