Flourishing Networks of New Stores Spreads Joy Across Europe

Since 2023, MINISO has strategically opened stores in key locations across the UK. Notable openings include the brand’s first blind-box themed store globally in London’s Chinatown opened in September 2023, the flagship store on Oxford Street opened in November 2023, and stores in Camden Town and Westfield Stratford City opened in early 2024. The brand’s continued growth in the UK is evident in its recently opened store at the Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent, near London.

In addition to its growing UK presence, MINISO has made significant strides in other European markets. Recently, for example, the brand has introduced its first blind-box themed store in Spain. Paris, France, has also embraced the brand with the opening of two stores. Furthermore, MINISO’s reach now extends to Iceland, Malta, Greece, and Latvia, each offering a fresh perspective on the brand’s global appeal. With an ambitious outlook, MINISO is gearing up to make its mark in more European nations, signaling the brand’s ongoing commitment to bringing joy and value to customers throughout the region.

Robust Overall Growth in Europe with Impressive Financial Performance

In the full year of 2023, the brand’s Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) in the European market increased by 67% year-on-year. This momentum continued into 2024, where in the first quarter, sales in the European market saw a year-on-year growth of over 80%., showcasing robust and enduring consumer demand. The European market’s contribution to MINISO’s global success underscores the brand’s ability to resonate with diverse consumer preferences and adapt to local market dynamics effectively.
