Aldo Group Inc.
Aldo Group Inc. was born with the 1972 opening of four stores by Moroccan founder Aldo Bensadoun. Aldo Group knows the value of cheap chic; heck, its founder practically tripped over the concept. Aldo Group runs about 1,500 shoe stores, including more than 700 under the Aldo banner and another 335 shops under the Spring, Feetfirst, and Globo names, among others. The company has stores in Canada, the US, the UK, and some 50 other countries worldwide. Aldo Group entered the US market in 1993 and has grown to number 475 stores here. Globetrotting Aldo's international sales now outpace its business in Canada. Plans call for more expansion in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and the US.
