Regional Italian grocery retailer Moderna 2020 has rolled out a new maxi store format in the southern city of Pompei.
The 'Grand’eté' store is located on the premises of the former Porte di Pompei shopping centre, which was closed down less than a year ago after Auchan Retail Italia left the Italian market.
The space in the 3,300 square metre Grand'eté maxi store has been designed from scratch to offer a well-calibrated mix of services, functionality and hospitality.
The shop concept focuses on fresh and very fresh products in combination with a special focus on personal services.
The buffalo mozzarella cheese laboratory, butcher's shop, fishmonger's, sushi, cold meats and cheeses, fruit and vegetables with plants and flowers, and wine shop are complemented by a food court with delicatessen, pastry shop and bar, bookshop and general store.
The imposing structure, price competitiveness, the variety of departments and services are key elements in the relaunch of the Porte di Pompei shopping centre, which has been in operation for 30 years and was one of the first in the Campania region.
