Edeka Redevelops The Marktkauf-Haus In Osnabrück
Edeka Minden-Hannover is investing €12.5 million in the renovation and modernisation of the Marktkauf-Haus in Osnabruck, Germany. The renovation, designed to meet the latest standards in technology and energy-efficiency, is planned in phases to allow sales to continue throughout.
Construction work will start on 22 August, and the reopening of the new hypermarket is scheduled for Easter 2017.
The new Marktkauf-Haus will feature wider aisles and lower shelving, for shopping convenience. Food, drugstore products, textiles, toys, electrical goods and household goods will share the 7,500-square-metre shop floor with a children's play area and a rest area for elderly shoppers.
"We want to offer more regional products, especially in the food department. The new market will feature modern service counters for sausage and meat, cheese and fresh fish. Until now, these products were only available in self-service," said Norbert Sexton, head of the business unit at Marktkauf.
Edeka Minden eG was founded in 1920. It is one of the most profitable regional branches of the Edeka co-operative today, employing 67,854 people.
