Marc Shoes has opened the first of a series of single-brand stores in Mainz, and it has launched an e-commerce site, www.marcshoes.de, which is working very well. Two other stores are going to open in the next couple of months in Berlin and Budapest, and other countries are under consideration after the initial test phase. The new merchandising scheme by the former footwear licensee of Hugo Boss and S.Oliver follows positive results with Marc shop-in-shops in more than 50 stores in Germany, Austria, Hungary and other countries.
