Sarenza Celebrate 1 Million Online Shoe Sales

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwire - April 20, 2010) - Sarenza, the French online shoes retailer, has reached the milestone sales figure of 1 million shoe sales successfully delivered to satisfied customers. The brand will use the landmark accomplishment to springboard its ascent in the UK.

The firm celebrated its achievement by presenting one lucky shopper with £3500-worth of shoes absolutely free. The person who received this prize by purchasing the firm's 1 millionth pair of shoes was Oceane, a 19-year-old French girl. She ordered a pair of Bensimon pumps from Sarenza's extensive womens shoes collection and received a golden ticket in her parcel informing her of her lucky win. Not only did she win enough shoes to last a lifetime, Oceane was presented with tickets for a weekend getaway in an up-market palace in Paris where she will open the doors of her room to find dozens of free pairs of shoes, as well as a photoshoot allowing her to model the footwear and a luxury pedicure.

Although present in the UK since November 2009, the brand will now embark on a full expansion. Created in 2005 and established in Paris, Sarenza has cemented its reputation by offering a diversified choice of online shoes to consumers, with over 160 brands and 7000 different pairs of footwear available on its website. Elegant styles of womens shoes such as Jonak and Minelli have played a large part in the brand's ascension as these are very popular in France, along with vintage footwear like Feiyue and comfortable brands such as Geox. Eccentric brands such as Spain's El Naturalista also sell well, although it remains to be seen which brands and styles will peak shoe sales and consumer interest in the UK.

Service is also an important part of the company's mission statement. Not only does the online brand offer free delivery on all purchases with no minimum order, but it also provides a free returns service on any purchase for up to 100 days. Furthermore, any shoe sales made before 12pm on a weekday will be sent out to the customer before 4pm the same day. The brand's payment and delivery services have been ISIS-Accredited, while payment is 100% secure (the firm deals with Paypal and Société Générale).

Sarenza is embarking on an exciting new chapter. With its planned expansion in the UK, the brand will soon provide the same quality service and outstanding online shoes offering to UK customers as is already appreciated in France.
