Builders are already cleaning the site and preparing it for the start of the construction works.
The local authorities said they have not yet issues a construction license for this site, but confirmed that a Carrefour hypermarket will be built there.
This will be the biggest hypermarket in the country.
The appearance of a big player such as Carrefour, which in terms of sales is number one in Europe and number two in the world (behind Wall-Mart), will surely change the retail sector in Bulgaria, analysts said a year ago when the French group opened its first stores in the country – in Sofia and Burgas.
Experts also commented that only now we can really say we have hypermarkets in Bulgaria, as a store of that type should occupy an area of at least 10,000 sq.m and offer a large variety of goods, from food and clothes to electronics.
