X5 Group's 13,500th Store Is A 'No-Customer' Outlet
Russian food retailer X5 Retail Group has announced the opening of its 13,500th store, in Moscow. The outlet is a Perekrestok dark store and, therefore, will not be open to shoppers.

Dark stores are a new concept for the retail giant. Access to the 4,400-square-metre store will be limited to employees only, and it will be equipped to handle up to 20,000 SKUs.
