The JW Marriott Bucharest shopping gallery becomes more deserted

The lack of a coherent strategy both retail and marketing seems to be driving away gradually more and more tenants of the shopping gallery within the JW MARRIOTT Hotel. The latest shop which closed earlier this week is CATWALK, occupying the second largest space after the Louis Vuitton store. Other shops which closed within the JW Marriott gallery this year include Franck Muller and Korloff. 

The Catwalk was a specialized multibrand store of accessories, both shoes and bags of the following brand mix Bruno Magli, Fratelli Rosetti, Bally, Gino Rossi and Burlington. The store was owned by Rafar a division of RTC Group which has been in deep financial difficulties recently. Rafar used to operate the Bally monobrand shop in Bucharest which closed in 2009.
