Under the situation of fair price fast fashion brand channel submerging and online shopping sharing the lower-end costume market, Baleno was sold, does it real come to an end? Then, what causes it?
It is learned that there are only 43 shops in its original area Hong Kong, 54 shops in Shanghai, and 56 in Beijing. Although in headquarters Guangzhou there are more, this brand is out of sight in main shopping malls, replacing by small shops in curbsides.
