Lebanon-based fashion and lifestyle retailer Azadea Group, which owns and operates over 50 leading international franchise concepts across the MENA, Asia and Europe, signed an exclusive franchise agreement with Payless ShoeSource. As per the agreement, Azadea Group will partner with Payless ShoeSource, as its exclusive franchisee, to establish the Payless ShoeSource retail chain in Ghana.

A cornerstone of the Payless strategy is to expand into new markets and become the brand that resonates with consumers around the globe, and be the first choice for budget-conscious consumers, who shop for shoes and accessories,” adds Paul Jones, CEO of Payless Holdings.
