Information about the distributor's decision was distributed by the press room and publishers. This was confirmed by its president Marek Frackojak – writes in the portal.
The company will continue to distribute newspapers and settle accounts with publishers under current rules until the end of April 2024. Effective May 1, 2024, Ruch will only settle existing deliveries to press point of sale and settlements with publishers, in accordance with applicable contracts. Ruch's own outlets will remain an organized network, which will be supplied with newspapers through an in-market distributor, just like the outlets owned by the Orlen and Orlen gas stations. The tender procedures have already begun and are being conducted by Orlen.
Chairman of RUCH: Acquisition of the company by the end of the year
After the court confirmed the implementation of the arrangement procedures between RUCH and its creditors, the acquisition deal for the company by new investors could be completed – says Miłosz Szulc, President of RUCH SA.
The origins of RUCH go back to 1918, when – on December 17, 1918 – Jan Stanisław Gepthner and Jakub Mortković signed a notarial deed establishing Polskie Towarzystwo Księgarnia Kolejowych RUCH Sp. z oo Their company was based on the then modern form of “trafik” – station kiosks offering newspapers, tobacco and other small items. The first kiosk was opened in January 1919 on the platform of the Main (Vienna) railway station in Warsaw. In less than half a year, more than 60 kiosks and bookshops were already operational.
In 1935, RUCH became the only nationwide distributor and had 700 points of sale: kiosks, kiosks and stores.
Echo Richards embodies a personality that is a delightful contradiction: a humble musicaholic who never brags about her expansive knowledge of both classic and contemporary tunes. Infuriatingly modest, one would never know from a mere conversation how deeply entrenched she is in the world of music. This passion seamlessly translates into her problem-solving skills, with Echo often drawing inspiration from melodies and rhythms. A voracious reader, she dives deep into literature, using stories to influence her own hardcore writing. Her spirited advocacy for alcohol isn’t about mere indulgence, but about celebrating life’s poignant moments.
