Looking for a classy gift for a friend or family member? Heyland & Whittle is a treasure trove of candles, soaps, home fragrances, and bath and body products. We asked distributor Oliver Leung about the newly opened Hong Kong store.
What’s your role with Heyland & Whittle?
I’m the brand distributor in Hong Kong and Macau, and I also support the company’s international sourcing. We carry almost 100 percent of the active range of the parent company in the UK, and my aim is to match the prices of the products sold back there.
Tell us a bit about the new bricks-and-mortar store.
Heyland & Whittle opened its first international store in October this year, in SOLO Avenue in Causeway Bay. We didn’t want to go to a high-traffic shopping mall, because we felt it might affect our pricing strategy for customers. We want to sell high-quality products but at reasonable prices! Key products at the store include candles, reed diffusers, soaps, washes, lotions, oil burners and various gift sets.
Keep an eye out for the Heyland & Whittle online store for Hong Kong customers, which opened from December.
