Leading Belgian shoe chain Brantano on Friday posted a six per cent climb in full-year sales to 299.4 million euros from 282.6 million euros in 2001 as it was boosted by the opening of 24 new stores. The operator of 295 shops said it sees sales up 11 per cent this year to 333 million euros partly due to its recent acquisition of 28 Famous Brunswick Warehouse stores in the United Kingdom and new store openings.
