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.
We are here to do business. Integrating inspiring brands, quality people, technology and experience we serve our customers for a new era, while bringing value to a continuously evolving ecosystem: our suppliers, customers, employees and local communities.
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.
