WE … are crazy about great shoes

Our roots go back to the foundation of NORD-WEST Schuhwareneinkaufsgenossenschaft eG in Hamburg in 1919. Over time, mergers and acquisitions led to a continuous expansion of our business operations. In the light of this, it is not surprising that the ANWR GROUP is today the industry's clear number one in cooperative shoe retail.

The leading trade cooperative of Europe’s most profitable shoe retailers

Our specialised trade cooperatives provide professional support to independent retailers, and with great success:

  • Ariston-Nord-West-Ring Schuh (ANWR Schuh)
  • GARANT Schuh + Mode Deutschland
  • REXOR Schuh-Einkaufsvereinigung
  • plus: the country units of ANWR GARANT International

Many shoe retailers – usually in addition to their main store – also make use of the excellent QUICK SCHUH franchise concept in order to expand their business activities.

A passion for shoes that is shared by our members

With our targeted product and service portfolio, we strive to contribute to our members’ success in the long term. To do so, we support our retailers and never lose sight of increasing profitability in their businesses: through goods, product and trade concepts as well as procurement trade fairs and corporate management services.

Schuhe.de – that major online shoe portal

When visiting the top domain www.schuhe.de consumers can find a unique platform for shoes, on which the product range of more than 4,000 specialist retailers is displayed. Each of the retailers presents itself with individual business cards on schuhe.de. On this “electronic business card”, the customer is informed about contact details, opening times, contacts, services and brand diversity. The “Digital Display Window” shows the available brands, models, sizes and prices - the data for this originate from the merchandise management system. With the “Payment Function”, direct sales are possible via schuhe.de. The retailers can integrate the “Digital Display Window” directly into their website, thereby making the product range visible and selling it online without major effort.

The platform also offers attractive options for manufacturers: in the form of a digital showroom and digital advertising spaces, on which campaigns and products can be shown via video messages and images – including links to the brands’ social media pages.
