Biedronka To Replace Alma At Renoma

Biedronka are to take up the space in Renoma left vacant by the now bankrupt up-market supermarket chain Alma. 

Alma had been present in Renoma shopping centre ever since its refit was completed in 2009. However they had to close last year after being hit by competition from discounters. 

The space previously occupied by Alma has been empty for around a year, but it will now finally be occupied by another supermarket in the shape of Biedronka. 

When Renoma re-opened in 2009, the shopping centre's aim was to become an exclusive mall for Wrocław's well-heeled shoppers. However that goal has proven difficult to achieve, and with the Wroclavia centre now open, Renoma cannot afford to be too picky about its tenants. 

Hence the arrival of Biedronka, a discount supermarket that was continually sneered at for a long time in Poland.

Times have nonetheless changed since these days. Biedronka's product range now includes a number of more exotic items that would not look out-of-place at more up-market supermarkets like Alma.

This is something that Renoma's owners, Griffin Poland, have been keen to stress about the new supermarket: "Customers of the new Biedronka store in Renoma will be able to purchase carefully selected high quality products. Particularly noteworthy is the rich variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as a wide selection of freshly baked breads."

It is thought that the Biedronka in Renoma will open its doors in December.
