MBT, the marketer of Masai Barefoot Technology, has opened its first store in Germany in co-operation with a local retailer. The door is in Kühlungsborn on the Baltic Sea. Currently the brand runs 120 single-brand stores worldwide. Another new store is scheduled for Lyon, France, for summer 2009. The Swiss company moved into France recently under the leadership of Henri Dupraz and his distribution company, Diode.
