Dutch discount retailer Zeeman is expanding its online presence in Europe, according to Ecommerce News.

The company now has an online store in the Netherlands and Belgium, but will now also launch an e-commerce website in France and in a yet unknown market.

Zeeman is a Dutch discount chain with stores in the Benelux, Germany, France, Austria, and Spain. In 2012, the company launched its very first online store, in the Netherlands. Four years later, Belgium became the second market where Zeeman has its e-commerce website.

According to information, Zeeman will launch its online shop in two new markets in 2022 – in France and also in a market that is still unknown to us. But for sure, that it will be in a country where Zeeman currently doesn’t have physical stores.

The expansion of its e-commerce business in Europe comes after a period of exponential growth, due to the pandemic.

It caused a fast learning curve, which means that we are now further than where we normally would have been. In the end, it turned out well. I expect that we will be able to run a profitable operation sometime next year
