"Many consumers have developed new shopping habits and spend their money on sporting goods, TVs and the like instead of clothing. We therefore have to adapt to the trends of the time. Personal contact with customers and our advisory skills are our great strengths. We need to communicate this much more strongly, as too many consumers still know too little about us. This also means that we all have to become more recognizable. We offer unique services and have great stories to tell. Cooperation within the industry also offers great potential.

Digitization is a great opportunity for us to reach existing and new target groups, raise awareness of our offerings and products, and launch services on the market. To ensure that we are as well equipped as possible to meet these challenges, we have worked with the creative industries to produce these guidelines. It is intended to capture impulses, highlight opportunities, explain them in a comprehensible way and thus make them feasible.

All the best and good luck!"
