Most Germans wouldn't know that kik is also a chat app ;-)

"KiK is the largest textile discounter chain in Germany and operates about 3,200 stores in Germany, Austria (since 1998), Slovenia and Czech Republic (since 2007), Hungary and Slovakia (since 2008), Croatia (since 2011) and Poland (since March 2012)."


Being from Germany, I had initially assumed that was in fact the company in question. I was wondering why a textile discounter would care about some NPM module...


There is a British company selling eCigs called Kik.co.uk too.

Seems Kik is a fairly common term, even for companies.

This shows the claims from kik messenger are not valid, at least in Germany.
