CCC, the fast-growing Polish shoe retailer, has reportedly appointed Frank Riedel as expansion manager in Germany, with an office in Frankfurt. He had been working for C&A since 2007. After launching its stores in Austria, CCC is going to open its first three or four German stores before the end of this year, possibly building up to a network of 30 units by the end of 2014. They will be located, for the most part, in shopping centers. As previously reported, the discount-oriented retailer, which already operates more than 700 stores in nine Eastern European countries, is also moving into Croatia. It recently opened its first two stores in Slovenia.
