Commenting on the company's plans for 2023, Zygmantaitė said, "This year, we will continue to focus on providing customers with the lowest possible prices and rolling out the 'My Shop' concept, with the majority of stores adapted by the end of the year. This year we will also continue to invest in the well-being and growth of our employees.

"In 2022, we have allocated almost €7 million for this purpose, increasing employee remuneration, and providing various additional benefits and support programmes for the growth of the company's employees.
