E-commerce accounted for 9,1% of Mango’s total turnover in 2014, said the Spanish clothing chain which grew in 2014 by 48% in sales to €183 million. The firm currently operates online sales in 76 countries, of which 12 were created in 2014.
The label also doubled its online sales from smartphones as it introduced a new app to support its omnichannel offering. In 2014 Mango achieved a new record by reaching nearly 2 billion page views.
“We will continue to invest in improving our online services” said Mango’s Vicepresident Jonathan Andic. “The development of our mobile app and our website has enabled online sales services in 76 countries. Our goal for 2015 is to expand our services to a number of countries either directly or through local partners,” he informed.
The Andic family is also looking to strengthen Mango’s “superstores” concept in their brick-and-mortar stores, following a plan that has already begun to change the brand’s retail image. In 2014 Mango opened 43 new concept stores.
Mango is Spain’s second largest exporter of fast-fashion after Zara, producing more than 5,500 designs a year. The retail chain currently employs over 15,700 people worldwide.
