History

C&A was founded in 1841 by the Dutch brothers Clemens e August. Their initials gave origin to the brand name. We have more than 1,800 units in 24 countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia and we are among the largest retailers in the world.

In Brazil, it all started in 1976, with the opening of our first store at Shopping Ibirapuera, in São Paulo. Of course, since then, a lot has changed. But our work philosophy remains the same – to offer the best of fashion at affordable prices!

Today we already have more than 280 stores in 125 cities and over 15,000 professionals employed. A lot of people, isn’t it!? And do you know the secret of our success? In addition to the constant pursuit of innovation, we also strive to exceed people’s expectations and to leave a positive legacy.
