The British-owned Supermarket chain Tesco opened its first hypermarket in Slovakia on June 1 on Bratislavskej Street in Nitra. The store also took the opportunity to announce that another hypermarket will be opened in Košice later this year.

The Nitra site covers over 15,000 square metres. 7,207 square metres to be used for the selling areas and one-quarter of the area has been set aside for "seasonal promotions."

Peter Varmuža, the Ntra Tesco director, said in a press release that "more than 40,000 products will be sold with an even ratio of food and non-food items." Over 30 cash registers accepting domestic and international credit cards await customers.

The Nitra hypermarket will be open seven days a week from 8:00 until 20:00, the release said, and has 659 parking spaces for customers and 33 for employees.
