Skechers has assumed distribution of its products in Chile through the establishment of a subsidiary, Skechers Chile Ltda. The company believes the Chilean market, currently comprised of approximately 160 customers and 500 doors, will complement the brand’s recently acquired operations in Brazil. Besides the wholesale account base, Skechers also operates 10 own retail stores in Chile, a country of 17 million people. Six of the stores are in Santiago. Chile marks the 100th Skechers subsidiary and 16th international country where the California company handles its sales. Distribution of the company’s brands in Chile was previously handled by the Catecu unit of wholesaler Bata.
