  15. 15. We opened the first LV Store 1992in Beijing. It was attached to aluxury hotel and generated high sales quickly. Nowadays LV owns 12 stores in China, the amount of people buying LV is increasing, as well as the buying power. However we face the problem that LV bags and shoes are the items most widely copied. Counterfeiting is a continuous battle but hopeful as China develops, they will enforce the laws more to protect the intellectual property rights of all brands. In spite of this, sales of foreign luxury goods in China are boomingdespite annual incomes that average just $1,000 per person. Bernard Arnault, Chairman, L VMH

  21. 21. Emotions Triggered Shannon’s Experience in Madrid: “I was walking home from school with my sports clothes and book bag and I was shocked to find that I felt out of place and intimidated when I walked into the Louis Vuitton store in Madrid. My broken spanish and my American “look” made the salesforce less eager to assist me. Furthermore the store is very small, with only 2 other customers at that moment, therefore I felt all eyes were on me. Although many things caught my attention, my first impulse was to try on sunglasses. Basically I wanted to get out of the store without knocking anything over, so I would say my experience was intimidating, however I feel they have done an excellent job at creating an aspirational brand”
  22. 22. Emotions Triggered Marcela’s Experience: “ I intentionally dressed up that day to measure the reactions of the sales people. I started to look around and found the staff friendly and helpful, although not too aggressive in their sales effort. I asked for assistance to see some wallets that were in a glass casing and the salesperson was pleasant and not overwhelming. I spent some more time in the store but was not motivated enough to make an impulse purchase, although the service was excellent and the store is enjoyable”
  23. 23. Emotions Triggered Stephanie’s Experience: “ I recently visited the Louis Vuitton store in Shanghai. I noticed here in China, many women in that area were carrying LV bags, giving me the impression that luxury brands are very important for the Chinese. Once in the store, I had the feeling that luxury items would be more affordable and more common, due to the large size of the store, the high traffic and the fact that everything else here in China is much more affordable for Europeans. However, I soon realized that the items were even more expensive than in Europe. Also, I felt more free to look around, without being observed by the sales staff, although they were friendly and greeted me pleasantly”
