DIY retailer Praktiker will extend its store in Deva by 1,225 sqm with an investment of EUR 1.3 million, the retailer has announced. The expanded outlet will cover 5,515 sqm. The move is part of a series of expansion projects planned by the firm for some of its stores in Romania. “Praktiker Deva was opened with expansion in mind; we were planning to exercise this option two or three years after opening,” said Monica Hodor, interim general manager at Praktiker. So far, the DIY retailer has expanded six other shops in Romania.
