Working through independent distributors, Polaroid is enjoying success with its eyewear in Russia, where sales rose by more than 30 percent last season, according to estimates by the company. Since December, Polaroid said its eyewear was added to 800 new outlets. In other Russian-speaking countries the company is also doing well. In the Ukraine, for example, sales of Polaroid eyewear jumped by more than 100 percent in the recent season. Polaroid put a new distributor in place there, and expects turnover to grow next season by 50 percent on top of the recent gain.
