Shop & Trade was born back in 1994, when Marianna Founda and George Souranakis decided to bring authentic and cool fashion forward brands in the Greek market.
The company gradually earned more and more customers, know-how and credibility in the market, while enriching its portfolio with international and established brands. Meanwhile, it entered the retail market by operating multiple mono brand stores and corners in the main urban areas in Greece.
Today Shop & Trade is a solid omnichannel platform importing and distributing apparel, footwear, accessories and wellness brands in Greece, Cyprus and Southeastern Europe.
Staying true to our company’s DNA, we bring authentic, stylish and innovative brands to the consumers. We make sure that everyone that we transact with is happy and satisfied. We offer rewarding partnerships to our customers, while we do provide fruitful distribution services to our suppliers. In doing so, we set an environment of constant development and security to our employees.
Profit. Security. Evolution. These are the keywords in our collaborations. In order to accomplish our goals we have created a healthy ecosystem where employees, customers and suppliers keep learning and growing from their day-by-day interaction. This is what we call a self-sustaining ecosystem.
Teamwork is the core ingredient of our business. That’s why we attract and nurture high skilled professionals who inspire and motivate every individual in their teams to push boundaries and achieve anything! It is the diversity of personalities, skills, background and hard work that drives the future of our company.
