In general, 2014 can be considered successful for us,“ Raul Puusepp said. “Also, in 2014, the emphasis continued to be on e-commerce. Kaubamaja went on with the development of campaign shops, and in addition to Osturalli e-shop, during the Christmas period, an e-shop for buying gifts was open. A little makeover was performed on the web pages of Selver, ABC King and I.L.U., the latter now has online shopping opportunities as well,“ Puusepp added.
The turnover growth for Selver supermarkets can be associated with new stores that have been opened during last two years. The launch of the new gourmet products department in Pirita has been a success; changes in product assortment have also played their part. “When talking about the purchasing habits of consumers one can’t help but notice that the purchasing power has grown little by little due to wage growth and low inflation. Considering the recent positive trends, I am glad that the construction works of a new shopping and entertainment centre in Viimsi are coming to an end in autumn, where we plan to open a new Selver,“ Raul Puusepp said.
