With plans for further expansion.

Catch Group has moved into New Zealand, the first in a number of new markets the company is looking to enter as part of its broader growth strategy that includes plans to extend into South-East Asia.

The group already has an established footprint in New Zealand following the 2017 purchase of the children’s clothing brand Pumpkin Patch that was recently launched online.

Catch Group CEO, Nati Harpaz said expanding into New Zealand was a logical extension for Catch. “We already have a good customer base through our online store on TradeMe and we look forward to offering New Zealand customers a richer shopping experience with a dedicated online store offering the amazing deals Catch is known for, coupled with fast shipping and a huge catalogue of products,” he said. The site will carry around 30,000 products across categories such as fashion, homewares, sporting goods, cosmetics, toys and more. Major labels include Sony, Nintendo, Adidas, Birkenstock, NARS, Benefit and Maybelline, with an average shipping price of NZ$9.95.

In partnership with Optus, the group recently expanded into telecommunications with Catch Connect and also announced a series of strategic transactions with Lux Group to focus its operations and bolster its position as the leading diversified products e-commerce group in Australia.

“We will continue to explore growth opportunities that allow us to offer our customers more choice and value. Whether that is through launching new online stores, expanding into new markets or through strategic partnerships,” Harpaz said.
