BackProfile

We are ZOOT, fashion geeks, retail pioneers and technological innovators.

Born in Prague, the Czech Republic, we focus on CEE countries: Slovakia and Romania to start. We are not your ordinary e-commerce site. We believe we have cracked the retail fashion code. ZOOT is a unique omni-channel concept that combines the best of the online and offline worlds into a fast-growing lovebrand. The fastest growing retail brand in the Czech Republic according to Inc Magazine, to be precise. But it’s not only technological innovation that’s close to our hearts. It’s our customers we are in love with. They are at the centre of everything we do. Thanks to this, we have one of the highest customer satisfaction indices in the world.

Values

Spreading joy is a long-term journey. But if you believe in what you do, it is the happiest one. At ZOOT we do not sell clothes; we offer our customers and employees a playground to fulfill their most secret wishes, no matter how difficult it may seem.

Optimism is the key. We like what we do and the way we do it. Therefore, we enjoy every moment of our lives, working together to spread happiness amongst our customers and each other.

Teamfight against stereotypes and monotony as evidenced by our team diversity. Not infallible machines, but people with their own soul and style who are not afraid of hard work are the perfect fit for ZOOT.

Energy is what fuels us. The best ideas come outside of ordinary working hours and sometimes it feels like the whole world is on our shoulders. Luckily, we work from the heart. That is the strongest energy that can keep one going. And we not only know it, we live it.

Innovations are what we believe in. We believe in the importance of bringing fresh impulses to peoples lives and minds. Moving the world forward by making things differently and with joy – that is the way we think and create.

Creativity is driving us. Details make people smile and bring the wow to their everyday lives. Therefore, we play with them all the time. We all should play more and be surprised frequently – so we walk, dance, sing and draw in order to look differently at the things we think we know.

Meet ZOOT, an omni-channel retail concept that spreads joy.
