Czechs have fourth densest chain of hypermarkets in Europe

The Czech Republic has the fourth densest chain of hypermarkets in Europe, with 26 hypermarkets per one million people, according to the results of a survey conducted by the Nielsen Company. The network of hypermarkets already covers most of the country’s territory and, according to data from Incoma GfK, nearly 90 percent of Czechs have a hypermarket within easy reach. Further expansion of hypermarkets has therefore slowed down in the last few years and is now restricted to smaller towns.
