Tesco halts opening of F&F stores in Russia

Tesco has halted the opening of F&F stores in Russia, sources close to the situation told Drapers.

Tesco’s F&F was due to open two stores within Debenhams stores in Moscow in June with Debenham’s Russian franchise operator Debruss. It was also set to open a third in August.

Drapers understands the stores were built and stock supplied, but the stores have failed to open.

A spokesman for F&F said: “We do not currently have any trading F&F franchise stores or concessions in Russia. We opened seven F&F franchise stores in the US last year and these continue to trade today.”

He declined to comment further.
