Schöffel and Lowa have now opened their first joint store in Switzerland. The dual-branded shop is located in the outdoor arena of Flims, occupying the premises of a store that used to be run by a local retailer, Rudolf Sport. The new banner is operated by a recently founded company, Rudolf Alpin Fashion AG. This firm is owned by Arno Dietz, who left - as reported - his job as head of design at Schöffel a few weeks ago. The completely refurbished store is the 18th of its type after Schöffel and Lowa opened their first combined shop outside of Germany in the Italian town of Brixen/Bressanone last spring.
