New Retail Chain Continues Expansion: Opens Third Store

The new store was opened in the town of Urmos, Kaunas (Pramonės pr. 16, hall 17, east gallery). Executives at the retail chain are said to see this store as the new face of the chain.

“Our first store in Vilnius, Lazdynai, was only 250 m², the one in Šiauliai is more than twice as big as the first and MLC in Kaunas is the largest. Buyers will be able to feel free on an area of ​​up to 1,000 m², where we will also have a wide choice of products,” explains Justas Poderis, director of the MLC commercial chain.

The new MLC store also has plenty of parking spaces, as it uses the existing infrastructure of the city of Urm. According to a press release, one of the chain’s unique features is that certain items are discounted when you buy 2 or more. For example, 1 kg of wheat flour “550D” usually costs 0.99 EUR, and when purchasing 2 or more units, the price drops to 0.74 EUR. These discounts would typically be between 10 and 25 percent across the MLC network.

The moments of the opening in Vilnius are in the photo gallery.

Representatives of “MLC” are delighted that the opening of the third store will allow the chain’s team to breathe a little more. According to Poder, more open stores give the opportunity to order more products from suppliers and negotiate more actively with them, allowing him to offer lower prices for an even greater portion of the products.

It is becoming easier and easier to engage in development. Kaunas “MLC” pallets are arranged more practically and aesthetically than so far, because the interior design and preparation stages are the most difficult and require the most investments with the opening of the first stores .

Further development – in small towns

The majority of the assortment of the chain’s stores continues to consist of non-perishable food products, but it is also offered to purchase household chemicals, household items, hygiene products, drinks and even seasonal products. It is also emphasized that more than 70% of goods are of Lithuanian origin in “MLC” stores.

The head of the retail chain says that this year it is planned to open up to 6 more such stores in different cities. At the moment, due to the simplicity of logistics, the expansion is taking place in large cities, but the network manager promises that attention will be paid to small towns from this year. For the moment, MLC representatives are not giving further details, but they say that news will arrive soon.
