A Century of Luxury Fragrances and Cosmetics

Embark on a journey through time with Franks Bazaar, tracing its beginnings to the late 19th century in Cospicua, the commercial heart of Malta. Discover how Salvatore Abela, known as “Frank,” laid the foundation for a legacy of elegance and luxury in fragrances and cosmetics.

The Birth of Frank: From Shaving Accessories to Legacy
In the late 19th century, Cospicua reigned as the commercial epicenter of Malta. The docks were abuzz with merchant and navy ships, drawing sailors from around the world. It was here, amidst the maritime hustle, that Salvatore Abela embarked on his journey. With a humble cart, he began selling shaving accessories to British and American sailors. Due to the complexity of his name, Salvatore, he was endearingly dubbed “Frank”.

Plaza in 1993: Expanding Horizons at The Plaza Shopping Centre
The year 1993 marked a pivotal moment in the FRANKS journey. The management of The Plaza Shopping Centre in Sliema recognized the allure of FRANKS and invited them to establish a perfumery in this prestigious location. What began as a fairly large store has since evolved into the largest FRANKS outlet to date, a testament to our enduring commitment to luxury.
