Martes Sport, the Polish sports wholesaler and retailer, has obtained a distribution agreement to start selling Icepeak in the country from the start of this year. The Finnish outdoor brand was previously distributed in Poland by Ski Team, a specialist retail chain. Martes is the Polish distributor for Arena, Colmar, Iguana and Nike accessories, as well as the distributor and footwear licensee of the Hi-Tec brand for Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Ukraine. Just as importantly, in the last five years Martes has built up a network of 68 multi-brand stores and nine outlets, most of them in secondary Polish towns. The hard-hitting company is well on track to reach its target of having 100 stores around Poland by the end of the year. Martes is one of the Polish groups profiled in our market research report on Eastern Europe, which will be released during Ispo.
