About

  • Ankorstore is changing the way independent wholesalers do business.
  • Its mission is to promote the development and growth of local and authentic retailers and help European brands expand their customer base.

Ankorstore is a partner to more than 100,000 retailers, florists, coffee-shops and other concept-stores across Europe - seeking authentic products and brands that e-commerce giants such as Amazon do not offer. The Ankorstore marketplace offers a product catalogue of over 10,000 European brands to retailers who want to offer their customers a differentiated shopping experience and new products. Ankorstore’s activity across Europe tripled in the first four months of 2021, despite half of Ankorstore’s affiliated retailers closing their doors during lockdowns.

In less than 1,5 years, Ankorstore is present in 23+ countries across Europe and has local offices in France, Germany, United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Sweden.

Ankorstore, part of the renowned FrenchTech 120, has asserted itself as an innovative growth lever for the retail sector with three fundraising events in just two years: 6 million euros in December 2019, 25 million in December 2020 and 84 million in May 2021.
