RETAIL SALES: Major supermarket chains in Slovakia including COOP Jednota, German retail group Rewe’s Billa, Lidl and Kafland plan to open new shops across the country despite a negative outlook for retail sales and rising unemployment.
However, Dutch supermarket group Ahold’s Albert and Hypernova supermarket chains will not expand and analyst Lubormir Drahovsky expects that Ahold may sell them to a financial group.
Reuters has not verified the media reports, nor does it vouch for their accuracy.
