The data concerning private consumption expenditure in Israel indicates that
in recent years the Israeli consumer purchases less, and similarly to other retail
branches, the chain stores in the fashion branch are not immune from this
phenomenon. The changes in Israeli consumption habits are expressed, inter
alia, in a freezing of the overall expenditure for private consumption on clothing
and footwear, which also totaled NIS 16.2 billion in the past year. The value
of imports, on the other hand rose by 8% and totaled $ 1,899 million.
Despite the stability in the total private expenditure on clothing and footwear,
the major companies in the branch continued to experience an increase in
earnings also in 2013. The aggregate earnings of the 12 leading companies
under this code was estimated at NIS 7.5 billion, an increase of 6% as
opposed to last year. In comparison to 2012 a growth can also be seen in
the number of branches, where in 2013 1,413 stores were operating, an
increase of 3%, as well as an increase in the number of employees, 15,138,
an increase of 4%.
Along with the positive results of the major companies in the branch, the small
and medium companies continue to face difficult in their struggle for market
share. The chains Matim Li and Jump encountered difficulties in 2013 and
were sold in November of that year to the Global retail Company in exchange
for NIS 2.2 million. Half a year later the chains were sold once again, this time
to the owners of the Onot chain.
In recent years there has been a trend of growth in the number of branches
of the local chains as well as the international chains operating in the realm
of children’s fashion. The fashion chains are interested in providing an overall
response under a single roof, and therefore they expand their collection of
products so that it will include, in addition to adults’ fashion, also children’s
fashion. Thus, for instance, in August 2013 the Castro Model Company Ltd
launched a collection of children’s clothing with an initial investment of NIS
18 million. In June 2013 the Fox - Wizel Company Ltd signed a franchise
agreement with the children’s fashion brand, “The Children’s Place” with
the intention of opening a chain of stores of that brand during 2014 with an
average investment of NIS 2 million per branch. In addition the Elbit Fashion
Company Ltd, which markets the Spanish fashion chain “Mango” in Israel,
announced its intention to expand and to launch a category of children’s
clothing during 2014.
The Mashbir Department Stores Group, ranked first, concluded 2013 with
earnings of NIS 2,488 million, an increase of 6% compared to 2012. The
Fox Company, ranked second, finished 2013 with an increase of 13% in
earnings, NIS 1,048 million.
Ranked third, the Zara and Pull & Bear Group, concluded 2013 with earnings
of NIS 800 million, a growth of 7% compared to last year. Castro, ranked
fourth, also concluded a successful year with an improvement of 10% in
earnings, NIS 774 million.
