ISRAEL: Alon Oil and Dor Energy to build mega-supermarkets, will open on Sabbath
Alon Israel Oil Company and its subsidiary Dor Energy plan to build four mega-supermarkets using its super Alonit Convenience store franchises. A report in the Jerusalem Post notes that Alon plans to compete against Israel's largest chains - Super-Sol, Coop, and Club Market, by opening new Super Alonit branches of 4,000 sq m each, incorporating Segafredo Cafes and Pizza Hut stores. Alon Israel Oil CEO David Wiessman said part of the strategy to compete with the big chains is to keep the new stores open during Sabbath, when all other food chain stores are closed.
