Oodji will start selling shoes

In 2012, the Oodji chain of stores will start opening its own shoe stores with an area of ​​40 sq. m. The first of them should start working next August. The network operating company August is now recruiting premises, as well as designers and factories to place orders. Shoes will also be sold in the existing Oodji stores, which now specialize in women's and men's clothing (the network has about 400 own and franchised outlets).

According to the head of one of the Russian clothing chains, launching his own shoe line will cost Oodji at least $ 3 million. August will not be informed whether shoe stores will open under a separate brand.
