Launch of Vente-unique.com site in Poland, continued roll-out in Eastern Europe


6 November 2018. Vente-unique.com, Europe's expert for online furniture sales, announces the launch of the Polish version of its website, www.vente-unique.pl, thereby continuing its roll-out in Eastern Europe.

With a population of 38.5 million and a GDP of over €530 billion growing by almost 5% a year, Poland is the largest market in Central Europe and ranks as the 8th largest economic power in the European Union. Above all, the size of its e-commerce market is significant, estimated at close to €10 billion with over 50% of Polish web users having already made purchases online. This favourable trend for online sales should accelerate with the ban on Sunday trading to be phased in gradually from 1 March 2018[1].

This is the second country launch in 2018, following Portugal at the start of the year. Since its inception in 2006 in France, Vente-unique.com has built up its European territorial coverage year after year:

The strength of the Vente-unique.com economic model resides in its shared platform and concept, both technologically (via a single website with multiple language versions) and logistically (uniform product range across all countries with a few special collections), enabling rapid international deployment at a controlled marginal investment cost.

This new country launch will strengthen the Group's presence in the Northern and Eastern Europe region (Germany, Austria, Benelux and Switzerland), which contributed some 25% of sales in the first half of the 2017-2018 financial year.

Next publication: FY 2017-2018 revenues, Monday 12 November 2018 before start of trading.
