Whereas mail order and online sales rose substantially by 6.9 per cent in Hamburg last year, the high-street retail trade showed significantly lower growth of 0.3 per cent. The sector is undergoing structural change. Hamburg-based business is developing its very own responses to this: Traditional mail order company Otto is building a bridge between online and offline sales using the platform Stocksquare. Meanwhile, fashion outlet Bonprix is combining the advantages of the high-street trader in Hamburg’s inner city with internet shopping – via app. Brigitte Nolte, head of the Hamburg branch of Handelsverband Nord (Northern German Commerce Association), reports that the innovative solutions of startups here are characterized by sustainable ideas.
These and other daily business news and reports can always be found in German and English on the platform Hamburg News. If you like our newsletter, please recommend it to other readers. Do you have any suggestions or tips? Then please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
