The group continues its expansion in Europe. Just a while back Allegro enabled buyers and sellers from across the EU to benefit from the platform’s top-class shopping convenience. Today, together with the Mall Group and WE|DO, we are finalizing the move which will solidify the enlarged group’s position as the marketplace of choice across the CEE and beyond. Local merchants will now be able to become international, while customers will benefit from the best possible offer. There is no online player offering such great selection at such competitive pricing across the region, and this is what we’ll do. The goal is to be the No. 1 online shopping destination across the countries the group operates in thanks to innovative and convenient tools for merchants, which in turn ensures that we have the widest selection at best prices. This scales much better when done with local small and medium-sized enterprises, and the hand-in-hand success of entrepreneurs and Allegro's marketplace in Poland is something the group will replicate across its wider footprint.
François Nuyts, Allegro CEO,
Since the beginning of our discussions, I can clearly see how well our groups fit together and how well Allegro and Mall Group complement each other. While Allegro is the marketplace champion, we have long-standing strong relationships with suppliers, offering access to extensive infrastructure and last-mile solutions across the region. Together we are an e-commerce champion sharing the same core - an innovative, customer-centric approach to business. We want to build on the best of our worlds and extend our unique model to make sure we’re the number one shopping destination for customers across the CEE and beyond.
Jan Hanuš, Mall Group CEO
We are proud that our expertise in last mile logistics can contribute to building an international marketplace. We also welcome a major improvement in access to all service solutions and other logistics resources that will accelerate the group’s development, focusing on the long-term goal: providing top last-mile delivery service to all our customers and merchants. WE|DO’s 300 couriers and 1,200 pick-up points will enhance the group’s joint offer. By combining our strengths, I am sure we are entering an exciting chapter of our business, also for our joint staff, which can look forward to expanding their talent inside the new group.
