There are two stores in our area: in Chełm and Hrubieszów. The staff does not hide that facilities are waiting to close, but does not indicate when that will happen. They explain that they do not have such knowledge. Currently, it is supposed to work as before, but all merchandise has been sold out and no new deliveries have been made.
He just appeared in Poland two years ago. It is a network of reducers known to Poles from the very beginning of their activity, for example Biedronka. The lowest possible price of goods is important, which is why they are sold directly from pallets and boxes. Products come from low-quality shelves, often with simple packaging. There are also no major marketing activities.
Recently, precisely with the beginning of the armed invasion of Ukraine, this network was subjected to a severe boycott. Precisely because of the fact of Russian origin.

In total, there are 10 stores across the country. Grid’s plans assumed that there would be over a hundred of them.
