Stores to stay in Cyprus and Greece?

Habitat UK Ltd has set up a dedicated email for customers in Cyprus, following the closure of the Cyprus store early this week and three stores in Greece last week as the franchise-holder ran into financial difficulties.

In a Corporate Statement entitled “Habitat’s Franchise relationship in Greece with Franco Import”, issued by Habitat UK Ltd the company said:

“Habitat UK Limited confirms that recent financial difficulties affecting its Franchise Partner, Franco Import, have led to the closure of 4 Habitat stores: 3 in Athens and 1 in Cyprus.

“Habitat regrets that the relationship with Franco Import, its independent business partner operating Franchise stores in Greece and Cyprus can no longer continue but would like to confirm that the nature of the store closures is not caused by Habitat.”

However, in a hint that Habitat might not be leaving these shores forever, the statement continued:

“Habitat is currently evaluating opportunities to maintain its presence in Greece and although it is too early to comment, would like to reassure customers that all options are being investigated with the hope to have more concrete information in the New Year.

“Habitat UK is aware that customer orders have been placed with Franco Import and have set up a dedicated customer enquiries email to ensure it is able to maintain contact with its valued customers.

“Email enquiries can be sent to: customerenquiries_cyprus@habitat.co.uk

Habitat currently has 74 directly operated stores: 39 in the UK, 24 in France, 6 in Spain and 5 in Germany.

“In addition, the company operates stores in partnership with wholesale/franchise operations in Belgium, Eire, Iceland, Luxembourg, Northern Ireland, Portugal, Thailand, Scandinavia and New Zealand.”
