The relaunch of the brand is to be achieved by working on pricing, a new storytelling strategy on the Internet, and also by bringing production closer together, with the aim of having 40% of its products imported from close countries by 2025. On the CSR front, the company plans to offer 100% eco-designed products for its essentials line within three years, and aims to extend second-hand sales to its entire network within two years.
“To drive our transformation, we are instilling a new corporate culture based on creativity and innovation, agility and the right to make mistakes. We draw our strength from Pimkie’s DNA.

A savings plan is also on the agenda. It involves the elimination of 64 stores and 257 positions over the period 2023-2027. With a network of 426 stores, 302 of which are in France, Pimkie generated sales of 319 million euros in 2022, according to the company.
