Magnit Opens Seven Additional Discounters

 

Krasnodar, Russia (February 15, 2021): Magnit PJSC (MOEX and LSE: MGNT; the Company, Magnit), one of Russia's leading retailers, has opened seven additional discounter stores under the My Price banner in Kazan (Republic of Tatarstan), Ruzayevka (Republic of Mordovia), Kuznetsk (Penza region), Verkhovye (Oryol region), Nevinnomyssk (Stavropol region), Semyonov (Nizhny Novgorod region), and Olonets (Republic of Karelia), bringing the total number of discounters up to 23.

All these discounters were opened at the premises previously occupied by Magnit Convenience stores. The total space of the store is around 150-350 sq. meters. The assortment includes about 1,700 items. The focus is mainly on goods from the first price segment and private labels (more than 15% of the total assortment), as well as on fast-moving consumer goods in value packs: vegetables, fruits, dry foods, dairy products, meat gastronomy, poultry, preserved foods, confectionery, baby food, drinks, pet food, household chemicals, etc. The discounters follow simple zoning principles and have only a basic equipment setup. This, however, does not affect the level of customer service, which remains high and meets all the requirements to a modern store.

Looking back, the first three stores under the new pilot format were opened in Samara and Kamyshin in Volgograd region and Staraya Kulatka village in Ulyanovsk region. My Price discounters are aimed at price-sensitive consumers who frequently make minor purchases of articles from the traditional assortment or wish to stock up on products. The Company later opened additional stores in Voronezh, Lipetsk, Samara, as well as Kabardino-Balkaria and Krasnodar, Tula, Chelyabinsk, Rostov, and Altay regions.

Magnit plans to continue piloting discounters and is going to open several dozen more stores under this format by the end of 2021 in order to closely examine customer feedback and decide on whether to scale the concept.
