Sands Cotai Central Phase III was officially opened in August, and can be considered a significant expansion of the mall size in operation at 70%. A total number of 36 new retailers have already opened for business, many of whom are home décor and designer children’s wear outlets. A further 15 restaurants and kiosks will open by the end of the year, enhancing the more family oriented attractions.
Sands Cotai Central now houses 140 brands, including many retailers’ first-ever stores in Macau and, for some, their first in Asia. Internationally renowned British retailer Marks & Spencer has officially established itself in Macau, opening its first store here in September, with H&M expectedto make its debut in Macau next April.
