PARIS Oct 3 French cosmetics retailer Sephora
will postpone the opening of several retail outlets in
Iran to end-2017 from 2016 as initially planned because the
right financial and political conditions are not yet in place,
sources said on Monday.
"Nothing will happen until the second half of 2017 at the
earliest because conditions are not yet in place for things to
happen," one of the sources close to the matter told Reuters.
Sephora, part of luxury industry leader LVMH with around
2,000 outlets worldwide, is keen to build its presence in Iran
where there is huge demand for cosmetics and especially make-up.
