Sabu, the German shoe retailers' cooperative, has launched the programming stage of a “drive to retail” online platform where members can show their products and services, localizing the potential customer and offering a “click & reserve” function. After a terrible month of September, due to the weather, Sabu's management is projecting a drop in centralized settlements of between 2.8 percent and 3.0 percent for this year, according to Textilwirtschaft.
