Metro’s proximity franchise LaDoiPasi has announced plans to have 1,100 stores in Romania by the close of 2019 with a goal of 2,000 stores by end-2020 from its current network of 820 stores.

The franchise was launched in 2012 as an alternative to traditional proximity stores that were closing down under the pressure of large modern stores. Currently, 40% of LaDoiPaşi stores are in the south of Romania, 30% in the north and 30% in the west, with the retailer pursuing expansion in communities across the country, both urban and rural.
