The Schuhe24 group, the German-based company that owns and manages the Schuhe24, Outfits24, Sportmarken24 and Taschen24 online marketplaces for independent shoe, sporting goods and fashion retailers, has joined forces with Locamo, another German-based company that manages regional online marketplaces. It currently offers about three million products, including books, textiles, beauty products and groceries. From now on, retailers affiliated with Schuhe24 will also be linked to the marketplaces of Locamo. Members of Schuhe24 will receive the orders placed on Locamo directly. Schuhe24 says its turnover increased significantly in the first three months of this year and another increase is expected in the second quarter.
