Slovenia’s Tuš Pulls Out Of Macedonia

Slovenian supermarket chain Tuš has withdrawn from Macedonia, thus ending all of its operations in the countries of the Former Yugoslavia.

Tuš previously operated three stores (in Štip, Kumanovo and Veles), but none in the capital Skopje. These have now been bought by local grocery retailer Kit-go, according to local newspaper Utrinski Vesnik.

In recent months, customers to the stores had complained that the supply of goods was much reduced and some items were not available for a long time.

A Tuš representative confirmed that the company is leaving Macedonia, but added the process is still not finished, despite reports that the purchase agreement was signed before the New Year holidays. As soon as legal procedures are completed, the company will come out with an official statement.

For its part, Kit-go plans to rebrand the three supermarkets in phases and consumers will be offered a similar product range to that which was available before. Kit-go is mainly present in Eastern Macedonia, operating around 20 supermarkets.
