Hanwha Galleria offers high-quality fashion, food culture, and differentiated customer experiences at Galleria Luxury Hall, South Korea’s preeminent department store, and at our flagship local department store networks.
Since its 1976 founding in South Korea, Hanwha Galleria has specialized in retail services with a great focus on department stores. We also operate other retail businesses, including online malls, global brand direct sourcing, and the retail of exclusive brands.
Currently, we have five stores (including the store Hanwha Galleria Timeworld, a subsidiary of Hanwha Galleria) across Korea in major cities of Seoul, Suwon, Cheonan, Daejeon, and Jinju. In 2020, as part of our expansion to meet growing demand, we will open our sixth department store in Gwanggyo, Suwon. Our Galleria Luxury Hall in Seoul is South Korea’s preeminent department store, featuring the world’s leading luxury brands. The Luxury Hall East offers high- end luxury brands with unique values while the other side of the building, the Luxury Hall West, showcases global fashion trends, fine dining, and premium services.
Together, the Galleria department stores offer an unparalleled suite of upscale shopping experiences. They carry distinctive brands and follow local fashion trends while also offering a food culture that is sure to satisfy every discerning taste. Individually, each department store offers its own differentiated experiences tailored to the needs of local customer segments. Each store also maintains a solid No. 1 position among department stores in the region.
The Gwanggyo store is slated to open in 2020 and it will be our second Luxury Hall. This store will leverage Hanwha Galleria’s decades of experience operating premium stores and managing luxury brands – some that are exclusive only to Hanwha Galleria . We will use our deep experience and skills in operating luxury department stores, the Gwanggyo store will set new department store standards by featuring customers’ favorite high-end luxury brands, enhanced VIP services, and digital conveniences. As a growth engine for Hanwha Galleria, the Gwanggyo store is slated to become the flagship landmark in Gyeonggi-do, along with a convention center, hotel, and multi-use building in the luxury complex.
Our vision is to be the No. 1 premium content producer. To this end, Hanwha Galleria will offer unparalleled values that no other retailer can provide. We’ve already begun by enhancing our merchandising with better lifestyle products and offering more services dedicated to VIP customers. Our department store division is stocking the best high-end brands and Galleria- Only brands and making them available in exclusive stores and environments our customers have come to expect. And going forward, we’ll look more to sustainable business models for the rapidly changing landscape.
Our goal is to deliver the highest-quality service in the industry. Going digital is one path we’re taking; the other is continuing our investment in our current business with renovations and new store openings. This way, as we pursue our vision, we’ll continue our constant growth streak.
