After the opening of its mono-brand store in Jordan in the capital city of Amman earlier this year (first major luxury brand to open mono-brand store in Jordan), Louis Vuitton is set to open this year a second store both in Kuwait and Abu Dhabi. Louis Vuitton has been present in the Middle East since 1983 when it opened its first store in Kuwait. Currently, there are Vuitton stores in UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon, most of them operated through a joint venture with local retailer.
