LEROY MERLIN TO OPEN NEW STORE IN KIEV IN 2020

Leroy Merlin Ukraine LLC (Kyiv), developing the DIY hypermarket chain of the French brand Leroy Merlin, plans to open a new store in Kyiv in 2010 and is seeking to open two stores of the chain every year in the future, including in large cities of the Ukrainian regions.
“This year we will open a new store in Kyiv. We know that we can open at least two stores a year, and not only in Kyiv, but also in the regions. Cities such as Odesa, Lviv, Kharkiv, Dnipro are large cities with about one million of population. We are sure that we have the opportunity to open stores there,” Director General of Leroy Merlin Ukraine Cedric Brosset said during an online broadcast on Tuesday.
According to him, the company is considering reducing the size of stores, in particular, the area of the new store in the Kyiv’s Retroville shopping center is 5,000 square meters. Brosset said that the reduction in format did not affect the assortment volume and was made possible thanks to efficient logistics and an increase in the share of online sales.
In addition, in hypermarkets during lockdown, the number of click & collect points for picking up online orders was increased.
Leroy Merlin Ukraine LLC was registered in 2008. As of May, 2020, the company had five Leroy Merlin stores in Kyiv and one in Odesa.
