A.S. Watson Limited is one of the oldest and best-known trading names in Asia. With a history dating back to 1828, the A.S. Watson Group (ASW) has evolved into a truly international retail and manufacturing business with operations in 36 markets worldwide.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of Hong Kong-based conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa Limited, ASW operates over 7,800 retail stores running from health & beauty chains, luxury perfumeries & cosmetics to food, electronics, fine wine and airport duty free.
In the UK, the Group also operates Savers, The Perfume Shop and 3.
Founded in the UK in 1988, Savers has hit a high note in the marketplace with its focus on fast-moving toiletries products. Savers' "mega-discount" format accentuated by simple store design, strong logistics and low operating costs were in sync with the values of A.S. Watson, which acquired the company in 2000, boosting its fast expansion.
Savers has since expanded aggressively and currently runs to over 230 stores, extending throughout England, Scotland and Wales from its historical base in the North East of England.
