The Sting opens Belgian web shop

The Sting opens Belgian web shop

Dutch clothing chain The Sting has launched a Belgian version of its web shop, which means that Belgian consumers can now do their shopping online, just like their British and Dutch counterparts. Germany should also get its own online shop soon.

Only in Dutch

The Sting was only a recent addition to the online space, as it only opened a Dutch web shop in 2013, a British version in February 2015 and a Belgian version just now. The latter is only available in Dutch, although the store chain also has a store in French-speaking Liège. Orders placed before 22h, will be delivered the very next day, or picked up at the stores in Antwerp, Leuven or Hasselt - but, for obvious reasons, not Liège.

 

The Sting, founded in 1982, opened its first store in Tilburg, the Netherlands. The first foreign store was opened in 2007, in Antwerp (Belgium), after which the company quickly moved to Germany (2008) and the United Kingdom (2010).
