BERLIN — The Douglas Perfumery chain plans to open 40 new doors primarily in eastern Europe this year.
In 2002, Douglas opened 11 doors in Spain, seven in France, seven in Italy, six in Poland and three in Hungary. The 756-door chain currently operates 424 doors in Germany; 72 in Holland; 9 in Switzerland; 32 in Austria; 85 in Italy; 45 in France; 40 in Spain; 7 in Portugal; 4 in Monaco; 12 in the U.S.; 15 in Russia; 7 in Poland, and 4 in Hungary.
