Retail International Group (RIG) was formed in 2006, digging its roots into the franchise operation in Libya with Mango and Benetton. RIG has since established a strong reputation as one of the pioneers in fashion retailing across Malta and North Africa as the master franchisee for over 12 top fashion brands. With stakeholders that have been retailing fashion brands for 50 years, matched with unrivalled experience in the North African market, Retail International Group offers fashion brands an opportunity to enter these emerging markets with a dependable and professional partner.
Since 2014, the tumultuous socio-political and economic factors have made trading in Libya very hard. Despite visits to Libya being halted the group managed to ensure constant support for its colleagues and operations in Libya.
The training and empowerment of RIG’s teams on the ground have led to many success stories, including Libya being shown to other franchisees around the world as an example of operational excellence.
Through our brands in Malta; ALDO, Punt Roma, Karen Millen and most recently F&F we strive to provide our customers with the latest fashion and an unparalleled customer experience.
Having firmly established its roots, the Group is looking towards other regions as well as an online presence to be able to provide a multichannel offering.
The Group’s offices are situated in Malta’s historic Capital, Valletta, where it shares the premises with its Supermarkets (1960) Ltd colleagues. This ensures a thriving corporate culture, with teams dedicated to delivering the best in total retail management and experience to its customers.
