Large retail chains in the Czech Republic have clearly failed in their role. They are supposed to provide people with quality food at reasonable prices. They do neither of these, and so customers have to buy overpriced and extremely poor quality food here. Of course, no one likes that, so according to experts, there is literally an ideal breeding ground for the start of a new retail chain.

Things are in motion

There has been talk for some time that Biedronka should come to the Czech Republic. What would not have made any sense until relatively recently, now seems completely logical. In addition to the fact that the Czechs liked this chain during their shopping trips to neighboring Poland, there is also a real step that this company has taken. It is opening its first stores in Slovakia, while the two markets are more than close to each other, and it wouldn’t really make sense if it didn’t also open this chain in the Czech Republic.

But we may have to wait a little longer for that. But in reality, a relatively new chain is already operating in our country, although it is not talked about much. It is about Mere, which is gradually opening its stores in medium-sized cities of the Czech Republic.

I like to go shopping there. For example, compared to Kaufland, I save approximately half on every purchase there,” says Mrs. Milena. “Sure, they have completely different brands, but I have to say that I got used to them and sometimes they really appreciate their quality. It seems to me that in the West it’s already cheating, but these Eastern products still maintain their level.”

Changes may come

He alludes to the fact that Mere sells food produced within the so-called Eastern Bloc. These are products from the Baltics, Georgia, Poland or Ukraine. In some cases, which aim purely for price, this may not be a glory, but the fact that people from the mentioned countries who are not very satisfied with domestic stores like to shop in this chain says something.

Mere originally had big plans in the Czech Republic, but in the end it significantly slowed down its expansion. But now he wants to restore it. It is interesting that a new discount concept in the form of MyPrice stores is already being launched in Europe. At the same time, it is quite possible that he will bring them to the Czech Republic, or rather rename the existing stores there.
