Ochsner Sport, Switzerland’s leading retail chain in the sporting goods sector, is accelerating its expansion into neighboring Germany. The subsidiary of shoe retailer Deichmann already has two outlets in the country. Now, it has announced that it is set to acquire Sport Sperk, a regional chain with a focus on Bavaria where it runs 13 outlets.
Last year, Ochsner Sport improved its sales by 7 percent to 442 million Swiss francs (€427.4 million) compared with 2013. This turnover was generated by 99 outlets in Switzerland and Germany.
