The German Zappos clone Zalando has recently entered the UK market. This means that the Berlin based shoe and fashion-shop is now available in Germany, Austria, Netherland, France, Italy and the UK. Zalando was founded at the end of 2008 and has been incubated by Rocket Internet, the incubator of the Samwer brothers. The first TV commercials for Zalando UK are probably going to start very soon. Because in contrast to Zappos, Zalando is not famous for its customer support, but rather for its funny TV commercials.
In addition to this international expansion Zalando also plans to open up its own logistics center near Berlin. The young company has announced that it plans to hire several hundred new employees for this logistics center in Brieselang.
