Schuhplus, the German mail-order retail specialist for extra-large men’s and women’s shoes, has posted an increase of 34 percent in its operating result for 2019. It has not published detailed figures. In 2018, the German company recorded an increase of 25 percent and stated that it was the most successful business year in its 16-year history. Schuhplus acquired an Austrian-based competitor, SchuhXL Feldmann, from its former owner, Peter Feldmann, on undisclosed terms in March last year. The company offers products from 56 shoe brands, the most important being Josef Seibel, Gabor and Ramonte. Online sales represent 85 percent of the company’s total sales volume. It currently has three physical stores and plans to expand its network in the coming years. Schuhplus will relaunch its website in March and start international online stores in various languages over the next few months. The mail-order retail specialist previously sold its products on 10 online sales platforms, but it has decided to concentrate on Amazon, Otto and eBay from now on.
