The brands Hassia and Ganter, owned by the Austrian-based Lorenz Shoe Group, aim to support retailers during the coronavirus crisis. When stores had to close down, Hassia and Ganter stopped deliveries immediately and improved the payment terms for retailers for all outstanding 2020 spring/summer invoices. The Lorenz Shoe Group also decided to grant customers of the two brands an additional 60 days value date for 2020 autumn/winter orders, no matter if retailers order directly or through a buying cooperative.
