Slovak supermarket mix changing in 2005

There will be changes in the Slovak supermarket mix in 2005. New shops will open while non profit-making stores will close.

Dutch company Ahold will open a new chain in Slovakia called “Albert”. They will be following in the discount tradition of German firm Lidl.

Diana Stanková, of the Ahold corporation confirmed that that three stores will be opened in Bratislava with more to follow in other parts of the country, according to the Národná Obroda daily.

Meanwhile, the Delvita supermarket chain has decided to sell eleven of its stores to Billa.

Also, the Aldi hard discount company behind the Hofer chain is getting ready to come to Slovakia as well.

Slovakia is missing a good quality small retail shops.

Some Slovak-owned chains are in need of renewal, which can only be achieved by creating alliances.
