B&Q撤港 宜家接租15萬呎舖
26 June 2009

【明報專訊】兩年前聲勢浩大地登陸香港的英國家居建材店B&Q,以業務整合為理由,將於數月後撤出本港。該公司現時租用嘉里(0683)旗下九龍灣MegaBox商場的店舖將結業,所佔用的12萬平方呎樓面,將由宜家傢俬承租,連同其他細舖,宜家將租用共15萬平方呎,宜家傢俬會由德福廣場遷往,新店預期在明年7月開業,新舖較舊舖面積大近倍。

B&Q在聲明中表示,自今年3月起計劃為全中國40家分店進行整合計劃,位於香港的門店將於3至4個月後結業,同時制定了詳盡的員工安置與賠償計劃,亦會確保現有顧客的消費者權益,在接下來的3至4個月內,B&Q位於九龍灣的門店將照常運營,而顧客服務將持續至今年底。 B&Q自07年6月開始進駐MegaBox,而商場的一般租約期為3年,按道理租約將於明年中屆滿;對於是否提前解約,B&Q昨日並沒有回覆。

宜家傢俬負責人、牛奶公司集團特項零售業務董事麥瑞琼表示,宜家傢俬現時位於德福廣場的舖位,租用面積達8萬平方呎,搬往MegaBox後舖面會增至15萬平方呎,為配合分店擴張,集團將於明年初增聘約50至80名人手。該公司現時在銅鑼灣、沙田及九龍灣均設有分店,明年九龍灣新址開業後,將成為旗下在港面積最大的旗艦店,新店將包括一間9000平方呎的瑞典餐廳。

德福頓失8萬呎長租收入

MegaBox Development Co Ltd總經理文靜芝表示,宜家租約期為超過2年,但拒絕透露租金水平,料宜家進駐後可為商場營業額帶來雙位數字增長。對於有大租客遷出德福商場,港鐵(0066)總商場事務經理伍翠樂表示,商場重整租戶組合是平常事,因為要令顧客保持新鮮感,至於該8萬平方呎樓面會怎樣處置,則要留待日後公布。

另一方面,新地(0016)代理租務部經理黃佩玲表示,旗下葵芳新都會廣場一樓翻新完成後,商場營業額及租金均錄得15%升幅;現提供之總54萬平方呎商場樓面100%租出,呎租在80至130元水平,上半年該商場營業額升一成,估計下半年升幅相若。

Busy lifestyles a nail in homeware retailer's coffin
13 July 2009
South China Morning Post

Two years ago Europe's biggest home improvements retailer Kingfisher opened its first B&Q store in Hong Kong with its sights set on attracting home upgraders to its wide range of do-it-yourself products.

Now the British retailing giant is following in the footsteps of another failed venture by France's Carrefour nine years ago and preparing to shut down its only store in the city.

Market observers believe the city's fast pace deprives consumers of the time and energy to be the home handyman.

B&Q's location in Kowloon Bay and lack of sufficient advertising were seen as other reasons behind the poor performance. Hong Kong Island or New Territories residents normally would not travel that far for furniture when they could easily buy from Swedish home furnishing retailer IKEA or local competitor Pricerite as they have more extensive sales networks.

Steve Gilman, the chief executive of B&Q Asia, who spearheaded the group's drive into the region by opening stores on the mainland and in Taiwan before taking charge of the Hong Kong store opening, had told the Post last year that the retailer had not found the right locations with the right space at the right price, but it would keep searching in order to build up a network of smaller stores. That never materialised and Mr Gilman, a B&Q veteran of almost 30 years, retired last year.

Unlike Carrefour, which withdrew from Hong Kong in 2000 but continues to prosper on the mainland, B&Q is having difficulties across the border, too.

Kingfisher's China business, including the Hong Kong store, lost £52 million (HK$653.68 million) last year, widening from a £17 million deficit a year earlier.

In the first quarter of 2009, those losses swelled 25.7 per cent from a year earlier to £14 million while revenues fell 23.7 per cent from "mounting costs arising from running down stores", according to Kingfisher's quarterly report.

Kingfisher, which entered the mainland market a decade ago, attributed the poor performance to a rapid weakening of the housing market and the consequent fall in demand for new apartment fit-outs as well as overexpansion.

"The global financial crisis has had a profound impact on companies across all industries. For B&Q, the weakening business climate in the home improvement industry in China is further accentuated by the negative effect of the decline in consumer confidence," a B&Q spokesman said.

The group said in March it planned a major consolidation and revamp of its mainland stores. A net exceptional accounting charge of £107 million was booked, primarily reflecting asset impairments and around £30 million of cash that would be invested in revamping the remaining 41 stores.

But the group remained upbeat on its China business.

"B&Q is the industry leader in the mainland market and we firmly believe that our new proposition will lead the change in the industry and continue our success in China," said the spokesman.

Rivals were less sure about its prospects, citing increasing competition from local players.

"B&Q attracted consumers soon after it entered the mainland market thanks to its good reputation and high-quality products. But domestic players are also improving quality assurance and services," said one industry insider.

B&Q also attracted negative publicity in 2007, when a supplier sued for delayed payments, which caught media headlines, said its critics. Although the case was settled and both sides issued a joint statement expressing satisfaction with the outcome, the public relations war waged before the settlement tarnished the foreign player's image, they said.

More fundamentally, said industry players, Chinese consumers had not taken to the DIY culture, forcing a change of product line-up on B&Q shelves.

Domestic rivals, meanwhile, were enjoying increased access to private equity as a source of funding.

Shanghai-based Red Star Furniture Group, for instance, received about US$200 million from private equity firm Warburg Pincus and is aiming to have an initial public offering next year.

Red Star now has 50 stores around the nation and owns about 70 per cent of store properties.

Board secretary Guo Binghe said in an interview that the firm planned to open an additional 15 to 20 outlets this year.

"In this competitive market full of potential, if any firm, foreign or domestic, big or small, can win hearts of consumers, it can survive and prosper," said Mr Guo.

代理:觀塘啓德大廈完成收樓93%,已有逾20間發展商接洽
29 July 2009

《經濟通通訊社29日專訊》中原測量師行董事張競達於記者會表示,觀塘道「啓德大廈」現時已收集93%業權,完成手頭上正處理單位,可望取得業權95%,現時已收到超過20間發展商提出接洽,意向價維持4月時水平。

該大廈由4幢物業組成,整地盤面積約6﹒1497萬平方呎,可建最大地積比率為7﹒5倍,而建築物內住用及非住用部份比率則為9倍。

他表示,早前政府建議把收樓門檻降低至80%,不但有利發展商,亦有利等候重建的業主,因為部份樓齡逾50年舊樓,業主已去世,要尋回遺產繼承人並不容易。

他補充,該地皮涉及288個住宅單位、16個地舖單位及100個車位,若招標成功,會成為有史以來最大的單一收購項目,招標期由今日至9月9日中午截止。(js)
