Otto Group is entering the Turkish market
At the end of April, online shopping club Limango at www.limango.com.tr, which was taken over by the Otto Group in January 2009, is expanding into Turkey
Private shopping platform Limango, which has become popular in Germany for the "young families" sector in particular, positions itself in Turkey with a wide range in the area of "fashion" from the outset. A number of top brand partners have been won over for the launch of the platform, including Adidas, Columbia, Escada, Ferré, Madarina Duck and Trussardi. In Turkey, Limango starts off with a team of eight, all of them with many years of experience in regional e-commerce. The Turkish managing director will be Gülfem Toygar, chairwoman of the Turkish E-Commerce Association. "We are very happy to have won Gülfem Toygar for the set-up of our business, who is such an expert in Turkish e-commerce ", says Martin Oppenrieder, Managing Director of Limango Germany.
Turkey has a rapidly expanding online market. A very young population structure - 57 percent are between the ages of 15 and 34 - combined with a good infrastructure in urban areas as well as high internet use and brand affinity are excellent preconditions for the establishment of the private shopping platform. "Limango offers Turkish manufacturers in the entire fashion segment access to a customer base with purchasing power. By entering Turkey, we are able to transfer our recipe for success to a young and attractive market", says Sven van den Bergh, Managing Director of Limango Germany.
The activities of Limango ideally complement the e-commerce portfolio of the Otto Group.Otto consistently pushes ahead with its online business. With smatch.com, the company founded its own very successful shopping community for fashion, living and lifestyle as early as 2007. In October 2008 the Otto Group announced the foundation of the investment company eVenture Capital Partners.
limango GmbH was founded in October 2007 by Johannes Ditterich, Martin Oppenrieder and Sven van den Bergh. In Germany, the company operates an online shopping platform for women and young families.
