Ukrainian supermarket chain Furshet has announced that it will roll out its new supermarket concept, after successfully testing a pilot store in Kiev. Changes to the concept will include increased fresh ranges and a larger selection of own-produced items, as well as modernised store interiors.
Auchan is considering introducing minimarkets in Ukraine, as it has in other European countries. The plan is to open a handful of stores in the capital city Kiev, bearing the Auchan brand. The retailer is however reportedly facing difficulties due to its contractual obligations with its local partner, Furshet.
