Econika will open an online store

The shoe retailer "Econika" will launch an online store in August 2012. This was announced by Stanislav Korobochka, project manager.

The product matrix of the online store will completely coincide with the one offered by Econika in offline outlets. Investment in the project has not been disclosed. The speaker also left the issue of the planned sales volume without comment.

According to him, the resource is designed for “young and energetic buyers who value every minute” and is conceived as “an additional service, the level of which corresponds to the same unique shopping atmosphere that we develop in the retail network”.

The top manager also stressed that the online store "Econika" will have the opportunity to try on shoes before buying, and it is planned to bring similar models of similar size together with the ordered pair. “This is an additional criterion for choosing a logistics partner, since not all transport companies operate on a split check system,” he said.

According to Stanislav Korobochka, Econika has already signed contracts with several operators. Subsequently, the retailer plans to create its own courier service.

According to the research company DataInsight, sales of shoes and clothes over the Internet in 2011 amounted to 34,4 billion rubles. (14% of the entire online trading market). According to InSales, this segment in 2011 was one of the fastest growing (+ 69% compared to 2010). According to the study, this dynamic was facilitated by the fact that online retailers improved the presentation of products on the site and the quality of photos, which made it easier to place orders for users. In addition, many online stores began to bring clothes and shoes of various sizes to the ordering customer, to provide the opportunity for a free exchange of ordered goods or a refund.

According to the rating of Iternet Retailer Russia TOP-30, the largest sellers of footwear through the network are LaModa (revenue in 2011, RUB 3 billion) and Sapato (revenue in 2011, RUB 1,23 billion). Among offline retailers, Internet sales are being developed by Ecco and Alphabet, retailer.ru reports.
