Liebeskind, Dorothee Schumacher, and lala Berlin, along with other influential German brands, join JOOR’s industry-leading digital wholesale marketplace and data exchange
JOOR, the world’s largest wholesale platform and data exchange for fashion, beauty and home, announced February 26, 2019 its expansion into Germany, solidifying the company’s dominance across Europe. Germany’s apparel market value is the highest in Europe, and is expected to reach over $60B in 2022, according to Statista. In accordance, JOOR has added a number of German brands to their wholesale marketplace, including S. Oliver Group labels Comma and Liebeskind and other leading brands such as Dorothee Schumacher, Juvia, Komplott, lala Berlin, and Ulla Popken.
“JOOR’s easy-to-use digital order-taking platform has completely transformed our sales process. We can also make faster and smarter decisions based on real-time data with JOOR’s visual reporting tools. We were really impressed to see that other brands that use JOOR have increased their sales team’s productivity by 50 %, and are excited to experience similar results with JOOR,” says Angelika Oehler, lala Berlin.
The JOOR marketplace connects more than 8600 brands within 53 categories including watches, luggage, jewellery, apparel and accessories with 190000 retail locations across 144 countries, including France, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland. With JOOR, brands and retailers can streamline wholesale buying and selling, saving time and money by digitizing currently manual, error-prone processes and growing sales for both parties by enabling faster, more insightful decisions on what to sell to the end-consumer.
The company’s expansion into Germany has contributed to JOOR’s exponential growth in Europe — in the last year, the number of European brands on JOOR increased by 50 %. The company’s European team, headquartered in Paris with regional offices in London, Milan, Madrid and now Berlin, is also growing rapidly, more than doubling in size over the last 12 months. JOOR has also recently expanded into Scandinavia, where the company entered into an exclusive partnership with Dansk Fashion & Textile earlier this year.
“After reviewing several other B2B wholesale solutions, we chose JOOR because they are a strong and reliable partner and well-discussed in the fashion industry. With JOOR, we can easily share our linesheets with customers 24/7, and can take orders much more efficiently. We also chose JOOR for its outstanding level of customer service. We are confident that we have selected the right partner to take our wholesale business to the next level,” says Franca Roberta Madel, Liebeskind GmbH.
JOOR’s growth in Europe reflects the wholesale industry’s search for technology solutions that drive efficiencies and sales growth.

In addition to the 190000 retail locations in its marketplace, JOOR has 25 exclusive partnerships with global retailers including, Harrods, Merci and Printemps.
