21Run already announced the acquisition on its Facebook page last month, but buyer All4running just published a press release about the deal. That’s because the Dutch omnichannel-retailer is busy with repositioning the 21Run brand and integrating the German website into the platform of All4running.
New distribution center in Alkmaar
“The integration of 21Run is a whole operation. Our highest priority is to offer German runners a specialized customer journey with quality content”, Arantes Whittie, ecommerce manager at All4running, explains.
The scale increase not only gives All4running a completely new market with many potential customers, it also offers them some physical challenges. To tackle this, All4running will start building a new distribution center in the city of Alkmaar, which will be 12,000 square meters big.
