According to a German trade magazine Schuhkurier, Görtz is asking for more flexible rents for the shoe retail industry. The Hamburg-based shoe retailing company, which has already reopened all of its 180 stores in the country, is calling for an adjustment of rental costs following the retail lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, which has led to financial problems for many retailers. Görtz requests that rental costs be adjusted depending on the turnover of the respective store, with monthly adjustments. According to the retailer, some agreements have already been made with landlords on this basis and are working out well. We would add that many shopping centers and department stores charge turnover-related fees in renting out space to brands and retailers.
