Singapore electrical goods and homewares chain Courts is expanding its hardware offer with a concession deal with US brand Ace Hardware.
Ace already has standalone stores in Indonesia and the Philippines. Now it will open stores-within-stores in selected Courts stores, starting with an 8000 sqft space in the flagship Megastore in Tampines. It is not yet clear if Courts will take the brand into its Malaysia stores as well.
Courts has signed a 10 year partnership with Illinois-based Ace Hardware, which has 4600 stores globally and turns over over $13 billion annually.
In a separate agreement, Courts will partner with Danish retailer JYSK to open concessions selling homewares
They are Ace Hardware International Holdings, and Danish retail chain JYSK, which sells mattresses, furniture and home interior decor. Despite being Denmark’s largest international retailer, it has an Asian presence to date only in China and Indonesia, where it trades under the JYSK Nordic brand.
