【看英文中國郵報學英文】日本知名大型賣場「驚安殿堂唐吉訶德」日前傳出將入駐台北東區,但不久後又有業者出面駁斥。對此,台北市東區商圈發展協會理事長韓修和1日指出,唐吉訶德入駐破局的消息其實已經是2、3月的事,但唐吉訶德方面很中意東區商圈,後續還繼續與其他地方洽談當中。

Japanese discount chain store Don Quijote is looking for a suitable location in Taipei East District, Han Hsiu-he (韓修和), chairperson of Taipei East Commercial Zone Development Association, said on Thursday, despite a failed attempt to open an outlet earlier this year.

唐吉訶德是日本全年無休24小時的折扣大賣場,在全日本擁有超過400間以上的店舖,主打「一站式購物」,每家店舖匯集數萬件的商品,包含化妝品、酒類、禮品、服裝、家具等。

Don Quijote, a 24/7 discount chain store with 400 locations across Japan, sells various commercial goods ranging from make-up to alcohol, clothes and furniture at a bargain price.

據傳,唐吉訶德在台灣首店選在台北東區,並看上有40多年歷史的永福樓。唐吉訶德先前傳出進駐台灣的消息就引起消費者關注,但不久後就聽說合作破局。韓修和表示,事實上,唐吉訶德與永福樓談合作已經是2、3月的事,但當時考量到主體結構不能大幅更改,無法增設手扶梯等設施,因此打消念頭。

Media reported that Don Quijote aimed for the 40-year-old Yung-Fu Tower (永福樓) first, but the deal failed because of the structure of the building that could not be changed to include an escalator.

不過,韓修和指出,唐吉訶德其實還是想進軍台灣,近期都有陸續在東區其他地方談合作,目前傳出談判狀況不錯,但是否已經正式簽約仍不得而知。

Han further pointed out that Don Quijote still plans to expand in Taiwan and is looking for new options in the East District. He said that negotiations are going well, even though he doesn’t know whether they have signed a contract so far. ●
