The landlord moved and locked out the Kennys Cardiology operator at Robina Town Centre last week. The notice stuck to the shutter names the company holding the lease – a Kennys head office company as I understand it.
There can be all sorts of reasons for landlords locking people out. Sometimes it is part of lease negotiation with the landlord flexing their muscle. In this instance it looks permanent as hoarding has now been erected at the site.
This activity is on the back of a retreat by Kenny’s from their corporate store at they Myer Centre in Brisbane – delivering a free kick for other card retailers in the centre.
