CCC Shoes & Bags, the Polish-based shoe retailer that is branching out all over Central Europe, ended the year 2016 with a 38.3 percent increase in total revenues to 3,191 billion zlotys (€729m-$777m), including a 50 percent increase during the month of December. Revenues from its physical retail shops rose by 25.1 percent to 2,735 billion PLN (€625m-$666m) last year, following a 27 percent expansion of the retail surface. The company currently operates more than 800 stores in 17 countries, and they are expected to be 1,166 at the end of this year. In contrast with its physical stores, which sell primarily private label models, its online shop, eobuwie.pl, which was taken over by CCC in 2015, sells branded shoe products.
