Unformatted text preview: Part B Tiffany & Co. In Denmark Stephanie Schaeberle Liza Semenova Barry Waters Charlie Ober Ying Lin 1 Part A Summary: Tiffany & Co. was founded in 1837 and supplies fine jewelry, timepieces, sterling silver products, stationary, fragrances, personal accessories, crystal and china. Tiffany currently has 206 stores open worldwide. Tiffany & Cos main competitors include Cartier, Bulgari, and Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton.

Ease of expansion is supported by a similar government, beliefs in personal freedoms, fluency of the English language and an increase in the salaries and positions for women. 2 Market Entry: Foreign trading companies are able to expand into Denmark either by creating subsidiaries or trading directly through a branch.
