in view of the market in good condition, Yimaide was announced to open 1000 stores in Chinese market, then the selection of Shanghai nine hundred and Tianjin TEDA as partners, stores are mainly concentrated in Tianjin and East china.

"1000 stores plan certainly difficult to achieve, but the rapid development of the market, also in the China E-mart reached dozens of stores. "Wu Kai said, struggling, in order to improve the performance, Yimaide years ago decided to sell some China stores to return the funds.

"in fact from the sale of stores closed shop to adjust, now only 6 stores, even shut down the 6 stores this year, equivalent to gradually withdraw from the market Chinese yimaide. "The insider said.

the The climate does not suit one. first financial reporter interviewed many learned, not easy to buy has been at a low ebb, once brilliant, especially in Shanghai, the first batch of stores, store performance was good.

China Yimaide area also have actively made the transition. Yimaide told first financial reporters, the sale does not mean Yimaide will give up China market, stop in order to better development, if there is a proper industry, Yimaide will not hesitate to sell to buy, in order to expand the territory of china.

Unfortunately, just a few stores, Yimaide is not a climate. "Director of United Business Network Retail Research Center Zhou Yong pointed out. Why

Korea retail giants in China so embarrassed?

Market. "Wu Kai bluntly, the ROK staff are more conservative, they are difficult to change tactics, even if found the problem, it does not necessarily change.

of course, the impact of the electricity supplier, manpower, rent prices and competition have plagued yimaide. Compared with WAL-MART, Carrefour in moving frequently hundreds of stores, Yimaide is too small, it is difficult to compete with competitors.
