Tod’s cuts its sales in Italy by 7.6% in 2019
Additionally, the group’s business seems to have backtracked in all the regions where it operates. In Italy, its local market, Tod’s saw a decrease of 7.6%, while in the rest of Europe witnessed a 2.6% drop. The decline reaches America and China, where the group’s sales have dropped by 3.3% and 2.3%, respectively.
Given the results, Diego Della Valle, president and CEO of the company, said in a statement that the group’s priority is to create “an Omni-channel group model, which allows us to sell products through our direct distribution.”
The director has indicated that the Italian will take a step back from department stores. “The contribution of classic wholesale will be less and less important for us and we are prudently trying to decrease it,” explained Della Valle.
