Polish health and beauty retailer Hebe is planning to launch operations in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, a report in dlahandlu.pl suggests.
The president of Jéronimo Martins Group, Pedro Soares dos Santos, described the markets as a 'natural place' in which to develop the business further and added that Hebe has a good prospect in the future as an omnichannel business.
Soares dos Santos did not specify the number of stores that the retailer plans to open in the two countries, the report added.
The drugstore chain, which sees around 1.2 million online visitors every month, is expected to report an increase in profitability this year.
Hebe, a part of the Jéronimo Martins group, operates around 270 stores in Poland.
