The opening ceremony of Starfield Hanam -- the first-of-its-kind shopping-themed entertainment park jointly developed by Korean retail giant Shinsegae Group and US shopping mall developer Taubman-- was held on Sept. 9.
The opening ceremony was attended by Shinsegae Group vice chairman Chung Yong-jin and Taubman Centers Chairman Robert Taubman, etc.
“We hope Starfield Hanam will become the pride of S. Korea," said vice chairman Chung Yong-jin at the opening ceremony.
Chung has said on various occasions that his mother, Shinsegae Group chairwoman Lee Myung-hee, inspired him to start this project. “My mother said that we should build a relaxing, sophisticated getaway place for stressed citydwellers on the outskirts of a city. We studied international best practices for benchmarking and skimmed the cream off. We worked hard and we are about to see our hard work coming to fruition.”
“Starfield Hanam is not just a large shopping mall. It is a shopping-themed entertainment park which offers unprecedented shopping experiences by encompassing leisure, healing, sportainment, the pleasures of the table and the amenities and services you expect from a quality theme park.”
Starfield Hanam sets itself apart from others by furnishing a family-friendly shopping and leisure environment designed to make customers stay longer.
Chung also underlined the significance of Starfield Hanam in facilitating inclusive, shared growth for its partners and the local community.
“We set great store by sharing the benefits of growth with customers, partners and the local community. We will share our growth with partners and make efforts to contribute to the growth of the local community.”
