The investments allocated by French retailer Auchan this year for the two projects, as well as money spent on the rebranding of the last Real hypermarkets will amount to of EUR 100 million by year end, said Patrick Espasa, the former general director of Auchan Romania, this April.
Works on Auchan Drumul Taberei, which will feature a hypermarket and office space, are in an advanced stage and the hypermarket could be completed in December, ahead of the initial deadline which was the first half of 2015, added Espasa. Works on the EUR 60 million Coresi Brasov are also underway and the hypermarket will be completed next year.
