The stores, with a total area of about 1,700 sq m, are fully in line with the new Pyaterochka concept launched in October 2013.

Local Tomsk producers will account for up to 20% of the product mix in the Pyaterochka stores in the region. The retail format has already entered into agreements with 17 suppliers from the Tomsk region.
The new Pyaterochka stores have created 40 jobs in the city. By the end of the year, the retail format plans to increase the number of stores in the Tomsk region to 20, thus ramping up the local headcount to over 300 employees.

Pyaterochka started its operations in the Siberian Federal District in August 2016, when the first stores were opened in Novosibirsk. As of 31 December 2017, a total of 270 stores were up and running in the Novosibirsk, Kemerovo and Omsk regions, and in the Altai territory. The Novosibirsk distribution centre, opened in September 2017, brought a new impetus to the Company’s development in Siberia.
