NEW YORK — Liz Claiborne Inc. opened a freestanding, licensed Liz Claiborne store Tuesday in the United Arab Emirates city of Dubai.

It is the firm’s first store in the Mideast. Located in the Bur Juman Centre, the new store will carry Liz Claiborne Sportswear, Collection, Lizsport, Lizwear, Liz Claiborne Dresses and Liz & Co.

The store was designed by Claiborne. The licensee — M.H. Alshaya Co. — will be responsible for daily operations.

Last year, Liz Claiborne merchandise was sold in more than 40 countries. The company currently has 19 Liz Claiborne stores in the U.S. and, in addition to Dubai, has retail license agreements in Hong Kong, Singapore, St. Maarten and Japan.
