More stores, internationalization and investing in logistics
‚ÄúThe continued success achieved over the past year yet again underlines how our business model has changed the whole eyewear sector‚Äù, founder and co-CEO Dirk Graber said. ‚ÄúThe current financing round will enable us to invest in further growth, and we have established three clear strategic priorities: further expansion of our retail store network, internationalization and additional investment into logistics.
11 physical stores, 10 online stores
B√ºll Family Office, which led the equity round, has a long-standing experience in commercial real estate and founder Albert B√ºll says they will actively support Mister Spex with the expansion of their own store network. Currently, Mister Spex has online shops in ten countries across Europe.
