Tenants leave Filion

On the night of October 19-20, the Rendez-Vous shoe boutique left the Moscow shopping and entertainment center Filion due to the fact that the managers of the complex obstructed the work of the store, thereby forcing the retailer to agree to new higher rental rates. The company intends to sue, said Slava Chkhaidze, director of shoe chain development.

As previously reported, notices were sent to the tenants of the mall, according to which they must leave the shopping center by October 17, 2012, if they do not agree to sign an additional agreement on an increase in the rental rate. After that, on September 26, the leadership of the shopping complex did not allow several tenants of the center to work because they refused to sign the document: the lights were turned off at the outlets, and there were security guards at the doors who would not let visitors, but only store employees.

The administration has applied such actions in relation to the Rendez-Vous, Giovanni Botticelli and Incanto chains, Subway fast food restaurant and shooting range.

Incanto also intends to sue. As soon as it became clear that the chain store would not operate in the complex, the retailer vacated the premises. They have not yet begun to comment on what is happening at Incanto.

The pressure from Filion was felt only by those tenants whose stores are located in a shopping gallery. The administration of the mall does not plan to ask for more money from the "anchors", including "Sportmaster", OBI, "Auchan", "Decathlon" and "Detsky Mir".

According to the expelled tenants, written notices with a rent ultimatum will be sent to the rest of the tenants in the mall. "The manager told us that soon the work of everyone who does not agree to their terms of cooperation will be blocked," a source told Retailer.RU.

However, over the past year, customer traffic in Filion has decreased. According to Slava Chkhaidze, over the past year, the store traffic has decreased by 15-20%, and this trend continues.

The shopping and entertainment center "Filion" with an area of ​​more than 120 square meters was opened in 000. Together with the neighboring "Gorbushkin Dvor" until the summer of 2008, it belonged to MTZ "Rubin", which is considered to be owned by State Deputy Alexander Milyavsky. The new owners of Filion and Gorbushkin Dvor are Complex Investments by Yuri and Alexey Khotin, the largest Moscow renters. In the rating "TOP-2011 largest owners of retail real estate 50" according to the publishing house Retailer "Complex Investments" take 2011th place (24 sq. M. Of retail property owned). The acquisition of Gorbushka and Filion, according to Forbes, cost about $ 239 million, retailer.ru writes.
