The list of Brantano branches that are about to close has been leaked. FNG previously announced that a maximum of 30 stores could close under the Brantano branch. Now it appears that the branch’s newest formula, Boutik by Brantano, will disappear completely, reports De Standaard and Retaildetail.
The Brantano closings would involve ten branches in Wallonia and nine branches in Flanders, according to Retail Detail. The branches to be closed include all branches of the relatively new formula Boutik by Brantano. This formula had to be the answer to Brantano customers’ demand for more brands. Boutik by Brantano also offers fashion.
According to the Brantano website, there are currently six branches with a Boutik by Brantano concept. These can be found in Lochristi, Dendermonde, Ninove, Oostende, Schelle, St-Denijs Westrem. When the concept was unveiled in 2018, FNG announced that it saw potential for 30 branches for the formula.
