Ukrainian online retailer Rozetka has opened stores in Kramatorsk and Konstantinovka, Rozetka co-founder Vladyslav Chechetkin told iforum2023 on Thursday.

“Yesterday we opened in Konstantinovka and Kramatorsk. We got stores there,” Chechetkin said.

According to him, before the war Rozetka in the above cities did not have them.

Chechetkin emphasized that the opening of stores in front-line cities is part of the company’s social mission.

“If you look at the map of military operations, you will see what distance from Konstantinovka to the front line is. For us, this means a social mission. Basically, we want to be near our customers, to help the locals who are constantly living in the war and also our military. Thus, we open even in the war zone,” the co-founder added to the Interfax-Ukraine agency.

He noted that Rozetka also operates in Mykolaiv and Kherson, which are regularly shelled by Russian occupation troops. In Kherson, the retailer opened on the third day after the de-occupation, but not all the stores that were there before the war are still operating in the city. In Nikolaev, the work of Rozetka has not stopped, Chechetkin said.

Online electronics and home appliances store Rozetka was founded in 2005 in Kiev by Vladislav and Irina Chechetkin, later the co-owner of the company became a fund managed by Horizon Capital. The company has now transformed itself into a multi-category online marketplace, but is also developing a network of its own stores, which stood at 297 as of February 2023, up from 270 a year earlier. In December 2022, Rozetka’s traffic amounted to 40 million people per month
