Japanese Disney stores to be restructured

Oriental Land Co., the operator of Tokyo Disney Resort, will close some of its stores that sell Disney merchandise and revamp operations at its other outlets to move into the black.

The Disney stores are expected to see a net loss of about 1.8 billion yen in the business year through March 31 on sales of some 17.6 billion yen, which excludes sales of admission tickets to the theme parks.

The goal is to boost store sales to 21 billion yen and get an operating profit margin of at least 4 percent by business 2010.

The changes are being made with the assistance of the Tokyo restructuring company Revamp Corp., which will provide its outside business expertise, Oriental Land said Wednesday.
