SINGAPORE (The Straits Times/ANN): Home appliance megastore Courts will take over the prime retail space at The Heeren which was recently vacated by retail stalwart Robinsons last month and make it its new flagship store.

The flagship store will occupy all six storeys of The Heeren's retail space, making it Courts' largest outlet in Singapore when it opens in the first quarter of 2022.

Courts opened its first store in Orchard Road in 1974.

"We are looking forward to expanding our presence in Orchard Road to where it all began and raise the bar further in offering Singaporeans innovative and experiential retail experiences while shopping for electronics and home furnishings," said Courts Singapore chief executive Hoang Duc Thanh Matthew in a statement on Thursday (Jan 14).

On Dec 16, Robinsons closed its flagship store at The Heeren, followed shortly after by the closure of its last outlet at Raffles City last Saturday (Jan 9).

The department store announced on Oct 30 the closure of its last two outlets here, saying the decision to liquidate was prompted by a range of factors, including changing consumer tastes and cost pressures such as rent.
