Discounter MERE Continues European Expansion With Serbia Openings
Russia's MERE is continuing its expansion across Europe, with the news that the discounter plans to have 15 stores operational in Serbia by the end of April, or the beginning of May at the latest.
The Minister for Trade, Telecommunications and Tourism, Tatjana Matić, told the Tanjug news agency that MERE plans to open a number of stores in Kruševac and Subotica this month, followed by additional openings in Kraljevo and Vršac during February.
Matic said that the arrival of one of Russia's largest discounters in Serbia is likely to increase competition in the sector and contribute to the modernisation of the Serbian retail network.
