Buy self-service Armani perfume, sell NFT on Instagram, the metaverse as a catalyst for transformation

of Florian Treiss November 23, 2022 in News

Dear readers,

the World Cup in Qatar is increasingly becoming a matter of attitude. And even if none of the 32 participating nations boycott the tournament, at least one party indirectly involved is now taking the necessary steps: Rewe is ending its cooperation with the DFB prematurely, which ruled against FIFA in the case surrounding the ban. The “One Love” captain’s armband has held up long enough. CEO Lionel Souque says: “We stand for diversity – and football is diversity too. We live that attitude and we stand for that attitude – even in the face of possible resistance of the Court of Sports of the CAS in favor of the bandage.

And now have fun with our retail news,
Sincerely, Florian Treiss
