Vaude will open three more single-brand stores in Germany, which will all be run by franchisees. On March 1, a store with a selling surface of about 300 square meters will open in Ludwigsburg outside Stuttgart, to be followed by two more doors in the cities of Paderborn and Bremen in April. The franchised store in Bremen will be operated by the Unterwegs Group, the big specialty retailer in the country's northwestern region, with 12 doors in the region and one web shop. The new openings will lift the total of Vaude's single-brand stores to eight across the country.
