Nelson Schoenen was founded in 1949. Today, the retailer operates 95 stores across the country. Nelson Schoenen offers collections for men, women and children, including brands such as Ecco, Timberland, Tommy Hilfiger, Converse, Gabor, Nike and Van Lier, as well as a private label collection. In addition to the brick-and-mortar branches, Nelson Schoenen is also available via its own e-store and at the online department store Wehkamp.
