Mercadona Reopens Stores In Tenerife And Mallorca
Spanish retailer Mercadona has reopened two of its stores on the islands of Tenerife and Mallorca following a multi-million euro modernisation project.
The retailer's Tíncer outlet in Santa Cruz de Tenerife was refurbished with an investment of €2.1 million, and now has a sales area of 1,635 square metres.
It also completed the refurbishment of its 1,200 square metre supermarket in Palma, Mallorca, following a €1.4 million investment.
The two modernised stores have been completely redesigned to enhance the experience for customers and staff, with more natural light, wider aisles, and new product areas.
The retailer has also taken measures to reduce energy consumption by up to 40% compared to its standard stores, with the installation of LED lighting, thermal insulation, and energy-efficient freezers.
In 2017, Mercadona plans to invest €180 million to renovate 126 of its stores across Spain to this new efficient model. It also plans to invest €5 million in developing computer systems, and advance its expansion in Portugal.
The company currently operates 84 supermarkets in the Canary Islands, and 49 in the Balearic Islands.
