Authentic Brands Group (ABG) has called on the brand-building services of the China Ting Group to expand the footprint of one of its properties, Volcom, in the Middle Kingdom. In June the Californian boardsports brand opened two stores in China – at the Mixc Mall in Hangzhou and the Summer Mall in the beach resort city of Sanya. Another 10 stores are to follow later this year. Volcom has been selling its apparel through Tmall.com and other Chinese channels for the past decade or so. It will be relaunching its regional e-tail site in 2021. Other boardsports brands in the ABG portfolio include Airwalk and Vision Street Wear.
