Alibaba will boost its partnership with Europe’s biggest department store group El Corte Inglés
According to Ecommerce News, in 2020, AliExpress users in Spain will be able to pick their orders up at El Corte Inglés stores. For now, AliExpress and El Corte Inglés stores are analyzing different ways of collaborating.
What is more, AliExpress aims to establish partnerships not only with Spanish retailers but with all types of companies. For example, Alibaba launched AliExpress Business in Spain, helping Spanish companies to sell their goods in Russia and China.
It is also important to mention that in August, AliExpress opened its first offline store in Europe. AliExpress Plaza is located in the Xanadú shopping center in Madrid. William Wang, CEO of AliExpress in Spain and Portugal, admits that to be a positive experience for both countries.
For now, some sources say that AliExpress is finishing its second opening in Barcelona, but AliExpress hasn’t confirmed this yet.
