“The Netherlands is the starting point for our expansion in Europe. We choose the Netherlands because the Dutch are at the forefront of online shopping and we are convinced that they, just like the Swedish consumer, would like to close a good deal. We think that offering existing collections is a modern way of shopping. We want to be a one-stop shop for the best deals on a wide selection of fashion and lifestyle brands and are therefore delighted to open our digital doors for Dutch consumers”.
Joanna Hummel, Managing Director, Afound.
Opening online 24 October, the digital marketplace will offer deals on well-known fashion and lifestyle brands for women, men and kids. With the mission to give fashion new life, the assortment only consists of existing collections from past and present seasons. Afound was launched in June 2018 – with its first store opening at Drottninggatan in Stockholm alongside an online presence in Sweden. During 2018 and 2019, additional stores were opened throughout Sweden.
