BEVERLY HILLS — Harry Winston is hoping its retail presence is going to sparkle more brightly.
In the next seven years, the jewelry house plans to bring its total doors to about 45, a significant boost from the dozen addresses it now has internationally, said chief executive officer Thomas O’Neill.
It began revving up its retail presence in January, with the opening of a 6,000-square-foot flagship here. A second, smaller Tokyo door, measuring 1,025 square feet, opened soon after. On July 4, the jeweler plans to open its third door this year, a 4,248-square-foot salon that spans seven floors at 171 Bond Street in London. A fourth could be added to the list, depending on how lease negotiations go for a location in either North America or Asia.
