Disney Store: stores all over Italy close

Disney Store

The Disney Stores, stores specializing in the sale of Disney products, will soon close all over Italy. The unions Filcams Cgil, Fisascat Cisl and Uiltucs made the sad announcement.

The future of the Disney Stores

The announcement of the closure of all the Disney Stores has come "after all", that is, with the liquidation of the company which took place on May 19, even if a storm was in the air since last year. In fact, during 2020 it was announced that the company was moving away not only from Italy but from Europe in general and last March Disney announced the closure of at least 60 of its stores in North America for this year to focus on sales. online. And this would also seem to be the motivation used in Italy too.

Now, next Tuesday, a unitary assembly of workers will be held to understand what to do.

The trade unions have opposed the decision, condemning the decision of the timely closures of the shops underlining that it is a serious choice, as the Disney Stores have become in the last 30 years an important brand and a reference point in many Italian historical centers for both adults and children.

The decision was also communicated without giving any prospects or making proposals for occupational protection. We take into account that the health emergency has led a large number of people to lose their jobs and the many restrictions and layoff periods alternating with uncertain and shaky work periods have caused countless inconveniences to many Italian families.

More than 230 employees work in the Disney Stores, divided into about 15 points of sale scattered throughout Italy who now risk losing their jobs.

The questions are so many. Will there be no more physical Disney Stores? Will sales focus only on online? And what will the future of the workers be?

We still don't know, but what is certain is that the closure of Disney stores will be a hard blow, difficult to accept.
