A group of 18 German and Swiss shoe retailers affiliated with ANWR has won the first round in its campaign to cancel the already completed takeover by the cooperative of a big German shoe and sporting goods retail chain, Schuh Mücke. It has received the support of 178 retail members, reaching the quorum of 10 percent of the membership required to call an extraordinary meeting to review the initiative. Meanwhile, Schuh Mücke has just opened its 12th store at Rödental. ANWR's management had announced its intention to acquire the chain last May.
