Furniture retailer iwannagohome to close Singapore outlets

Home furnishing and accessories shop iwannagohome will close its outlets in Singapore, its parent company confirmed on Friday (Feb 26).

Both its branches at Tanglin Mall and Great World City will be closed, said a spokesperson for the brand, which debuted in Singapore in 2007. Clearance sales have begun at both outlets.

A retail employee told Channel NewsAsia that he was told the shop would close “around May or June” this year.

No employees will be affected, the spokesperson added. “As we have other businesses, all employees will be transferred to other outlets.”

Among the other brands managed by parent company, Gill Capital, are fashion store H&M and candy store Candylicious.

No details were provided in response to queries about whether iwannagohome’s other outlets in Malaysia and Australia would be affected.
