The beginning

Wildberries was founded by Tatyana Bakalchuk in 2004, when she was on maternity leave. She discovered how hard it was to shop for clothes for herself with a baby at home. She ordered lots of clothes from German fashion retailer Otto and Quelle and tried to resell them, after storing them in her apartment. She delivered the orders to customers herself. Later, her company started to offer other types of products, such as household appliances, cosmetics and toys.

In 2017, Wildberries became the biggest online retailer of Russia And in 2019, Tatyana became the second billionaire female in Russia, while the company itself was also valued at over 1 billion euros.
