Disney is not a brand alien to all the changes that have occurred in recent years in the retail sector, as you may know, in addition to its contents and parks, part of its business also involves physical stores, although it seems that it is adopting a new approach in this sense, which also makes the change that physical retail is going through more noticeable.And is that if you have followed the news in this regard, you will know that the brand recently announced the closure of 60 of its stores located in the region corresponding to North America, this in order to give more weight to the e-commerce section for this business unit .
However, the closure of physical stores is not something new because over the years the reduction in its participation in retail has become not only in North America, but throughout the world. On the subject, in today’s graph, with data from The Walt Disney Company, highlighted by Statista, we take a look at how the number of physical stores operated by the brand worldwide has changed in the last decade.
According to the data, during 2010 the firm owned and operated about 360 stores spread over North America, Japan, Europe and China, but by the middle of that decade the number had already dropped to about 345.
Subsequently, for 2020 the number fell again, exceeding just 300 stores among the different regions mentioned. Now, for this 2021 Disney would be staying with a total of stores below 250, while it hopes that its efforts in electronic commerce will help it boost the income it has generated from this section.
It should be noted that in the fiscal year ended in October 2020, the firm obtained revenues of 4.2 billion dollars from retail and merchandise licensing.

Approximately three months after coming out as a member of the LGBTQ community, JoJo Siwa is seemingly celebrating with a vacation.
The Nickelodeon star took to Instagram early this week to share photos and a video of herself, her girlfriend Kylie Prew, and Siwa's family enjoying a trip to Disney World. While there, Siwa and Prew wore matching outfits, cuddled on rides, and took photos in front of Cinderella Castle.
Siwa wrote in her post that she's "happy :) so so so happy ❤️."

Siwa was welcomed into the LGBTQ community earlier this year with support from fans and fellow celebrities alike. But as the 17-year-old recently told People, it wasn't necessarily an easy thing for her to share with the world.
"I never should have done that," Siwa told People about Googling herself after coming out. "I was thinking that all the comments were going to be nice and supportive, and they weren't."
She added: "A lot of them were, 'I'm never buying your merch again. My daughter's never watching you again.' I couldn't sleep for three days."
Today however, Siwa is seemingly all smiles. At Disney World's Magic Kingdom, Siwa and Prew took photos of themselves wearing "Star Wars" shirts and matching sneakers in front of Cinderella Castle.
They also wore the outfits — and matching Darth Vader masks — while cuddling on Splash Mountain. The main difference in their looks was that Prew wore her hair down, while Siwa sported one of her signature bows.
At a different point in their trip, Siwa and Prew visited Disney Springs, a shopping center located on Disney property. They wore matching tie-dye shirts while there and hugged while taking a ride in a vintage Amphicar, which brings visitors on a car ride through the water to a nearby restaurant.

Also this month, another celebrity couple took a romantic trip to Disney World: Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers.
The engaged couple did an interview with Disney blog Chip and Company while there and gave some insight into their vacation plans.
While Woodley said they planned to "do all the things," Rodgers added that they were most excited to visit "Star Wars" attractions and kiss at Magic Kingdom.

Like Siwa and Prew, Woodley and Rodgers also wore coordinated outfits while at the theme park. The actress donned a sparkling, rainbow Minnie Mouse headband with a turtleneck and jeans, while her football-player fiancé chose a baseball cap and "Star Wars" T-shirt.
