Les Mousquetaires to open 10 petrol stations in 2011


Les Mousquetaires, the French retail franchise group, is broadening its push into petrol retailing in Poland with plans to open self-standing filling stations in central urban locations, Rzeczpospolita reported. Meanwhile, discounters Aldi and Lidl are planning to branch out into petrol retailing as well.

Intermarche, the French group’s grocery chain, has so far built 29 petrol stations at its stores in Poland, including seven that were added last year. In 2011 the number of new stations is to rise to 10. Importantly, some of the new stations are likely to be located along main roads in cities or towns with Intermarche stores, rather than in the immediate vicinity of the stores, Aleksander Hologa, who heads the petrol business at Intermarche, told the newspaper.

According to Rzeczpospolita, this would mark a new departure for the Polish sector of supermarket petrol stations, which according to latest figures accounted for 2.1% of the market by volume in 2010, up by 0.2 p.p. At the moment the number one player is Carrefour with 44 stations.
