Braunschweig. Real will soon be history in Braunschweig. In the Markthalle the lights will go out soon. If only briefly.
The supermarket pulls out of the Markthalle Braunschweig back. Globus takes over the shop – and the employees.
Markthalle Braunschweig: Real attracts with fat discounts
Before the major renovation of the Braunschweig market hall, everything has to be removed. Therefore, Real is now luring customers to Otto-von-Guericke-Straße with a fat discount campaign.
The articles have been reduced in all product ranges, Real announced on Friday. Thousands of items are now available at bargain prices, including goods from the warehouse.
“Due to the exceptionally high discounts in our store, we expect that the offers, especially in the areas that are in high demand, will be sold out quickly,” says store manager Giovanni Rizzo.
At the same time, he thanks the customers for their loyalty and emphasizes that all corona protective measures will continue to be implemented in full. That is the top priority.
The market hall in Braunschweig will remain open until April 24th, including the catering. It is scheduled to reopen as Globus Markt on May 10th.
