8th store in Madrid
Expanding an already successful operation, Humana in Spain opened an 8th second hand clothes store in Madrid on December 2nd. Barcelona remains the biggest operation in Spain for the moment with nine stores, but like in football, the ´competition´ from Madrid is there to be respected.
The new store is located on Calle Alcalá, one of the oldest (and longest) streets of Madrid, connecting the Puerta del Sol with the Avenida de America. The store has been completely refurbished before opening and a new touch has been added, a widescreen television showing film footage of Humana development projects. This has been done to inform customers to a greater extent about the purpose of Humana stores: using second hand clothes to generate money for development.
The news of the opening of the eighth store in the Spanish capital comes at a time Humana Spain has other reasons to feel festive. A couple of weeks ago the third best week ever in recollection was recorded in the Barcelona area and next year marks the 25th anniversary in Spain. In two and a half decades Humana Spain grew from a one or two person start-up into an operation that employs close to 280 people and is still growing.
