INTRODUCTION

Our Heritage

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.

Our Mission

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.

Like a perfect eco-system

Like a perfect eco-system

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.
