Sklavenitis has become an absolute leader in the supermarket market, having bought a new supermarket chain!

And the success is bigger for Sklavenitis, since Masoutis tried to buy the Gegos chain, but only got two stores!

The ad in detail:

“After 51 years of history, the curtain has fallen.

Super Market Gegos was founded in 1971 and spent a few days ago in the Sklavenitis (4 stores) and Masoutis (2 stores) chains.

Thank you very much to all the partners, suppliers, members of ELOMAS, as well as to all our staff who have supported us all these years. Thank you very much to all. Every ending a new beginning!” says Evangelos Gegos, member of the board of directors of the supermarket chain “Gegos”, on his LinkedIn account.

An agreement was signed last Friday between the “Masoutis” chain and the “Gegos” chain establishing that the latter’s stores in Argyroupoli and Keratea will be absorbed by the former.

On December 12, 2022, an agreement was signed between the “Gegos” chain and “Sklavenitis”, according to which the latter acquires 4 of the 6 stores of the former, specifically the Porto Rafti, Loutsa and Markopoulos Mesogaia stores.

The company “Gegos” was founded in 1971 by three partners with the first store in operation in Porto Rafti.

In 2021, the turnover of “Gegos” amounted to 19.07 million euros compared to 20.5 million euros in 2020, with the net result, after taxes, being a profit of 719,548 euros.

Supermarket: Do not touch these foods on the shelves

How can the coronavirus and other viruses stay alive on food packaging and supermarkets? The great danger that we all ignore. What do we have to do. All the details in xristika.gr.

British scientists say the coronavirus can remain alive on some foods and supermarket packaging for days.

In particular, scientists from the University of Southampton carried out tests on behalf of the Food Standards Agency (FSA), deliberately spreading the virus on packaging and food, such as bottled drinks, apples, peppers, cheese, ham, olives, crusty bread and croissants.

Most of the foods tested showed a “significant drop” in virus levels in the first 24 hours. However, in some cases, the tracks survived for about a week.

“For a highly infectious agent like Sars-Cov-2, which can be transmitted through contact with contaminated surfaces and then with the face, these findings are very remarkable,” they argue.

The team tested a range of temperatures and humidity levels to mimic typical storage conditions, measuring the rate of virus inactivation, and found that the virus seemed to last longer on products with rough surfaces (broccoli and raspberries) than on leather products. gentle. ., such as apples (although in some fresh chilled peppers the virus was detectable a week later).

Apples contain natural chemicals in their skin that can start breaking down the Covid virus within minutes or hours, scientists say.

Pastries like pain au chocolat appeared to have minimal virus after a few hours, perhaps because they are covered in a thin layer of egg during baking, the FSA scientists say. Eggs contain arachidonic acid which may have an antiviral effect.

Cheeses and sausages, rich in protein and fat, seem to allow the virus to survive for days, possibly a week.

Covid can survive up to a week on plastic surfaces. For cardboard boxes, it can be several days. For aluminum cans, it’s probably just a few hours, the researchers say.

Supermarket: Why are Sklavenitis and AB Vassilopoulos “massacred”?

In… knives are two of the most important supermarket chains in our country!

The Southern Suburbs may have monopolized interest in recent years due to the Hellinikon megaproject, but the Northern Sector is also showing strong mobility, with supermarket chains trying to position themselves in places where they believe they can play a leading role. Starting this week, Sklavenitis and AB Vassilopoulos are rolling out their investment moves in the region.

The final touches are being put on the new Sklavenitis hypermarket, which opens this week in the former Renault hub on the Athens-Lamia highway, near New Philadelphia.

This is the plot that previously housed the showroom and offices of the Mava AE car dealer, which passed to the supermarket group after an adventurous auction in September 2021, since from the initial price of 4.05 million euros it had to be The highest bidder, due to intense competition, reached into the bottom of his pocket, paying the amount of 11.2 million euros.

The timing of the radical transformation of the building into a supermarket was impressive, as the work lasted just under six months, since Sklavenitis received permission from the New Philadelphia City Quality of Life Committee last May.

The new hypermarket, the 33rd in the group, has exhibition spaces of 4,700 m2. and houses the full range of departments that Sklavenitis has in its large stores (note: as well as a children’s playground), while the total building areas reach 16,500 m2.

The group’s first supermarket designed from scratch in the energy crisis era is largely “green”, with 500 solar panels and electric vehicle charging points installed on its roof.

In total, the store has 200 parking spaces, which are distributed in two underground areas and one on the roof.

Supermarket: How Masoutis “crushed” its competitors

Move – Masoutis checkmate as he has managed to almost completely control the supermarket market in the Aegean, extinguishing the competition.

The Masoutis chain intends to take advantage of the tourist traffic this summer, which in various parts of our country is estimated to reach new all-time highs, even exceeding the performance prior to the pandemic.

The opening of new stores by the northern Helladic chain in the Aegean islands is included in the Masoutis agreement with SYNKA, which we recall refers to the transfer of the Corfu stores to Masoutis of the Galaxias and Markato companies, and to the transfer of branches located in the Aegean islands.

For Crete, the participation of Masoutis in the company’s share capital was agreed, where the stores will retain their current identity.

If a few years ago the chain’s power was limited to northern Greece, now it makes its presence felt both in the capital and on the country’s main islands.

As stated by the chain’s owner, Yannis Masoutis, among others, on the occasion of the agreement with SYNKA, “the strengthening of local producers and products will be -as always- a key axis of our presence in the new locations, since the development of our company always takes place in terms of giving back to the Greek society”.

The latest additions concern three new stores in Kalymnos (Christou Pothia), Milos (Adamanta) and Tinos (Akti Nazou), which arise from the agreement with SYNKA, bringing the Masoutis network to 343 stores throughout Greece. The specific stores, which have a total of 11 cash registers, employ 69 people.

A few days ago, in addition, the opening of two more new stores was announced: in Chios (Konstantinou Monomahou 1) with 4 cash registers and in Milos (Central Point of Triovasallo) with 2 cash registers.

It was preceded by the opening of three stores, and more specifically two in Naxos (one on the Egaron-Chora Naxos ring road and another on the Chora Naxos ring road) and another in Chios (in the Agios Minas area – Great position) with 20 parking lots.

During the month, on June 16, a new store was inaugurated in Santorini, in the Pyrgos de Thira municipality (central Perissa-Fira provincial road) with 3 cash registers and 2 parking spaces.

The start of this year’s expansion of Masoutis on the islands came last March, when the company announced its new store in Skiathos, which is located on the bypass (OT 265) and has 4 cash registers, 15 employees and 15 parking spaces.

It should be noted that the chain also has a presence on the island of Greece with stores in Andros, Lesbos, Lemnos and Thassos.

At the same time, the renewal plan continues. Recently, the renovation of the store in Sindo Thessaloniki (No 3 Avenue) was completed, while last month it was preceded by the store in Didymoteiho Evrou (Begeti 10 and Germanou).

In the same month, in May, the store opened its doors again in Iraklitsa Kavala (corner of Crete and Hydra), while last March the renovation of the store in Dafni Attica (Plutonos 36) was announced.

In addition to expanding and modernizing its network, Masoutis is constantly investing in new technologies and best practices with the goal of optimizing the shopping experience and better serving the consumer in its online store.

Thus, it has managed to integrate into eshop.masoutis.gr functionalities that ensure the customer an optimal shopping trip with the possibility of same-day delivery and coverage in 45 cities.
