The online retailer Digitec Galaxus probably benefited again from the Corona crisis in the 2021 financial year. For the first time, the Migros subsidiary achieved sales of more than two billion francs (roughly 1.91 billion euros). The company now also generates sales in the hundreds of millions outside of Switzerland. According to the information, the company cracked the sales mark of 100 million euros in international business in Germany and Austria.
The platform turnover of the electronics specialist Digitec and the online department store Galaxus totaled 2.122 billion Swiss francs (2.02 billion euros). This corresponds to a sales increase of around 16 percent, the company announced on Thursday. “The main growth drivers were products for the home, living and family,” explained Digitec Galaxus.
Last year, more than 2.3 million customers ordered something from Digitec or Galaxus at least once. Online mail order registered the greatest increase in customers in southern and western Switzerland. According to the information provided, the Migros subsidiary is also planning to expand the logistics and storage area in the next few months from the current 5,000 square meters to 20,000 square meters.
