Brazil's Haivana flip-flops hit 2,000 Colombia stores
Iconic Brazilian flip-flop company Havaianas is continuing to expand in Colombia with plans to set up its own operations in Medellín and Cali after the recent opening of a new store in the high-end Andino mall in Bogotá.
Alejandro Cruz, president of Alpargatas Colombia, told El Espectador that the company believes it can establish 2,000 points of sale in the nation. “We want to reach all of Colombia,” he told the paper.
The expansion has included the opening of new stores in Cartagena and Barranquilla on the Caribbean coast in addition to the marquee launch of its new location in the capital in mid-October.
