On February 13, the President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov met with the General Director of "Auchan Russia" LLC Jean-Pierre Germain at the House of the Republic.
"Your unit works well here in Ufa. More than two years ago we made some efforts on starting this store. I hope that everything goes well there. We would like to develop cooperation and we think that you also have some plans in this part", said the head of the republic.
According to Mr. Germain, "Auchan City" hypermarket is now under construction in the new "Arcada" shopping mall, which is expected to be opened this summer. "The peculiarity of this project is that fresh food makes more than 80 percent of the assortment. Now we have a project of the third facility, in the territory of which "Auchan City" construction is planned and it would be very interesting for us to develop this project too. It was extremely important for me to meet with you in order to know whether "Auchan" meets the expectations of republican authorities. Because when we grow we want to have some kind of feedback whether we really do everything right and according to your plans", the businessman said.
Details of the meeting are available on the official website of the President of Bashkortostan.
