What brings the "bundle"

Related products allow not only to dilute the assortment in a shoe store and pleasantly please the buyer, without forcing him to puzzle over where to buy a suitable bag or shoe cream. They say that they sometimes make up a third of all sales.

Today, many shoe store chains, such as Centrobuv, Centro, Monroe, Econika, Westfalika, sell as accessories not only insoles, creams and sponges for shoes, but bags, underwear, gloves, umbrellas, and jewelry and even cosmetics.

The Kotofey brand of children's shoes launched the production of related products last year. Their range includes insoles, shoe care products, hosiery and tights, gloves, mittens, hats, scarves, backpacks, satchels, umbrellas, stationery. According to Andrei Kapusta, a marketing manager at Yegoryevsk-Obuv, the decision to supply Kotofey brand stores with related products was made in order to maintain their sales in the offseason and increase the average check amount.
