Romanian Mega Image expands at lightning pace

Romanian Mega Image expands at lightning pace

Romanian supermarket chain Mega Image, part of Belgian Delhaize Group, has opened an extra nine stores, which means it now has more than 400 stores. The group has opened 150 new stores this year.

50 openings in 3 months

Mega Image opened four 75 to 118 sqm Shop&Go stores in the Romanian capital, Bucharest, and added three large supermarkets in the same city to that. There is also a new Shop&Go in Constanta, while a new Mega Image supermarket will also be opened in Ploiesti.

 

Earlier this month, Mega Image re-opened 18 Angst stores under its own name, after the group had acquired the chain earlier this year. Over the past few months, Mega Image has launched a huge store opening spree: in September, it had 350 stores, but it has now expanded its store range to more than 400.
