Mothercare Indonesia Confirms Business as Usual and Growing

Jakarta (Paradiso) – Mothercare Indonesia today confirmed that its business is unaffected by the recent closure of Mothercare in the UK and will continue to operate and grow in Indonesia.

Mothercare is a leading retailer and one stop shop for parents and parents to be. It is the best place for parents to find the right products with the finest quality for all their parenting needs since 1961.

Mothercare in the UK closed its final store on the 12th of January 2020 and has signed an exclusive deal with a new partner to re-introduce the much loved Mothercare brand in the UK later on this summer.  Mothercare’s International business is profitable and growing with more than 1000 stores in 40 countries and remains unaffected by the recent closure of Mothercare in the UK.

In Indonesia, Mothercare is operated by the Kanmo Group.  Speaking on the recent developments, Manoj Bharwani – Co-Founder & Managing Director of Kanmo Group, said, “Mothercare Indonesia is a separate organization with exclusive rights to operate Mothercare in Indonesia. Mothercare in Indonesia is loved by many and is growing strongly!  We currently operate 47 stores in 16 cities and have plans to open another 5 stores in 2020.  Our online site, www.mothercare.co.id, along with our brick and mortar stores are registering strong sales growth year on year. We recently opened Mothercare’s largest store in Southeast Asia at Grand Indonesia Mall, where you can find the widest variety of Pushchairs, travel, feeding, nursery, toys & fashion products all under one roof.  We are confident that Mothercare in Indonesia has huge opportunity to grow across the country.”

The Kanmo group manages more than 15 brands in Indonesia, such as Coach, Kate Spade New York, Nespresso, Mothercare, Early Learning Centre, Justice, Gingersnaps, Havaianas, Wilio and many more. The Indonesian retail market is growing significantly across all categories and we believe that Indonesia will become the leading market for retail consumption in Asia in the near future. (*)
