The flagship stores endorse
the DNA & Codes of Hermès.
It sells the Hermès experience
to the client. The price to pay is
the high rental expenses, high
cost of personnel and high
The local store has lower rental and personnel expenses due to its' smaller dimensions. Less exclusive. The location of the store is not the best in town.
The least favorite for Hermès.
No space to deliver the experience.
Very poor exclusivity. It will affect
negatively the brand image of Hermès. Costs are extremely limited.
