As the “Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ)” currently reports, there is now initial information as to which locations will survive the recent insolvency of Galeria Karstadt Kaufhof and which will not. According to current reports, around 60 of the 131 remaining locations are affected by the closure. The SZ learned this from corporate circles.
As the SZ wants to know, the locations that are to be closed include department stores in Bayreuth, Chemnitz, Cottbus, Göttingen, Kiel, Landshut, Lörrach, Lübeck, Münster, Nuremberg, Paderborn, Reutlingen, Saarbrücken, Siegburg, Speyer, Trier and Wiesbaden. However, according to the report, there are also locations that are considered “safe”. These include Aachen, Bonn, Braunschweig, Bremen, Dresden, Kassel, Mannheim and Würzburg.
The online retailer Buero.de originally stated that it wanted to take over part of the Galeria Karstadt Kaufhof branches. He then withdrew the offer at the end of December, citing “changed framework conditions” as the reason. However, there will probably be final clarity as to which locations will be closed for the approximately 17,400 employees and their customers in March.
