Hemköp to take over hypermarket

Hemköp to take over hypermarket Hemköp will take over the Robin Hood Hypermarket (formerly B&W) in Valbo Shopping Center on March 1, 1999. The hypermarket will then be reprofiled to Hemköp's winning concept with focus on quality, environment and health. The store will be given a new large-store profile with a clear focus on fresh produce and a sales space of approximately 5,500 sq.m. Hemköp will open a bakery adjacent to the store which will provide some ten additional stores with fresh bread. Valbo Shopping Center is the largest in Sweden's Gävle region with a total sales space of approximately 35,000 sq.m. and it is visited by two million customers per year. This establishment in Valbo is a result of Hemköp's cooperation with the D Group.
