Paris — Sally Beauty, a cosmetics store, will open in Paris in 2017, the French company announced Wednesday.
The Paris store, located in the 19th arrondissement in the capital’s Rue du Louvre district, will be the largest cosmetic retailer in the country.
It will be staffed by 1,000 staff.
The retail center will be based on a 1,600 square foot store and features the biggest cosmetics collection in the city.
The company will open the store in late June.
The new store will be located in an old-fashioned shopping center on Rue du Marne and will be a partnership between the two companies.
The French company also announced that it will open a new beauty clinic in the Paris area, which will be part of its expansion plans.
Sally Beauty will operate from the new beauty clinics.
The two companies are set to sign a memorandum of understanding in March.
In addition to its beauty clinic, the new store is slated to add a new salon to its roster.
Sally has already opened a beauty store in London, which opened last year, and a store in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Danish company, which operates Beauty and Wellness International, is expected to have about 500 employees in Paris by the end of 2017.
The European Union approved the merger between the companies in November, and Sally Beauty is expected on the market in 2018.
