The Lisbon district is preparing to welcome the first Mercadona stores this year. However, next year, the opening of a supermarket in a street of the capital is certain. The information was confirmed by Juan Roig, president of the group, this Tuesday, March 15, during the presentation of the channel’s annual results.
“We will arrive in the city of Lisbon in 2023”, said Juan Roig, quoted here by the newspaper “public”. The brand’s future spaces in Setúbal and also in Oeiras have already been in the recruitment process for a few weeks.
According to data presented this Tuesday in Valencia (Spain), in 2021 Mercadona has tripled its sales in our country. The first 20 stores raised 186 million euros. With 29 places in the north of the country, this value has increased to 415 million euros.
