Globus Hypermarkets Began to Work out a New Format of Stores in Russia
In the company's investment plan for 2020–2021, it isn't planned to open stores with an area of 900–1400 square meters, insists the representative of the Russian office of Globus. He recalled that the store has a reduced area of 6 thousand square meters, Globus opened in the fall of 2019 in Kaluga: “We carefully analyze the effectiveness of its work, after which we can conclude on the profitability of a hypermarket with a sales area of 6 thousand square meters".
After evaluating the effectiveness of the pilot, the company will decide on scaling up the new format - while it is planned to open at least three stores, it follows from an internal document. The head of the project, indicated in the presentation, was selected Olaf Frank, head of the multichannel department of the Russian office. The press service didn't answer the question about Frank's participation in this project.
