ROMANIA: Mega Image plans Bucharest expansion
Romanian retailer Mega Image is planning to focus its expansion efforts on Bucharest in 2009, when it will open an additional eight stores.
"Mega Image… plans to expand its network with eight more stores in 2009, reaching the target of 48 stores at the end of the year. Our focus will continue to be Bucharest," a spokesperson for the Romanian supermarket group told just-food today (3 December).
