Van Haren, the Dutch shoe retailer, achieved a record turnover of nearly €101.2 million last year, up by 5.3 percent. Excluding store openings, the shoe retailer’s sales crept up by nearly 1 percent and the number of pairs sold last year increased by 4.8 percent. This was much better than the market, which dipped by 4.4 percent for the year. Van Haren, which belongs to the Deichmann group, is the third-largest shoe retailer in the Netherlands with 122 stores. Another three store openings are planned for this year.
