It started with golden button. In the former Czechoslovakia was impossible to find golden button before 1990’s, remembers with a smile on his face the owner of STOKLASA company - Ing. Leo Stoklasa, who together with his wife started the business:
“My wife wanted to have dress with gold buttons, she saw a picture of it in then popular magazine BURDA, but gold buttons was the hardest thing to find. We had to travel to close by country Poland where we found them. We noticed that stores in Poland were stocked not only with buttons, but also threads, linings and other goods that were missing in the former Czechoslovakia market. This is how the idea was born and later the company.”
Successful entrepreneur recalls the beginnings of his business that started on the first floor of his parents house. Cross-border imports were not common in the nineties, so there was a high demand for imported goods. But it was necessary to load the car and drive personally to various stores and offer the goods. Soon enough more sales-mans were hired to drive to different locations in the country and nearby countries.
“Few years ago 90% percent of our goods was sold from our pickup trucks, we delivered also to Slovakia, Poland and Hungary. It was time-consuming and also expensive. Fortunately the Internet came just in time to start the e-shop.”
