Just going through some data on the german fashion market. Just found these turnover figures from 2008 (in Million Euros)
Arcandor 4.116, Otto 3.480, C&A 2.954, Metro 2.539, Hennes & Mauritz 2.476, Tengelmann 1.568, Peek & Cloppenburg 1.343, Aldi Group 1.071, Lidl 1.029, Tchibo 931, Esprit 800, Ernsting´s Family 676, New Yorker 622, Takko 560, Klingel 525.
The most interesting question would be how these sales figures develop in terms of web shopping in the next years as of eBay´s and AMAZON´s new strategies. Who will have the most successful multichannel consumer approach? And will have the most efficient and remarkable marketing programme combined with the perfect shopping experience in our cities.
