French Do-It-Yourself Retail Chain To Leave Croatia

French hypermarket chain Bricostore, which specialises in home improvement and do-it-yourself goods, is to leave Croatia, sending over 300 people to the unemployment que.

Bricostore will close its stores in the capital Zagreb, Pula and in Kastel Sucurac by the end of June and leave the Croatian market, reports Poslovni dnevnik. Bricostore entered the Croatian market in 2004 when it opened its first store in Kastel Sucurac. Three years later in 2007 they opened their Pula store on the northern Adriatic coast and in 2012 they opened their largest store in the capital Zagreb. Bricostore invested over 25 million euros in their Zagreb store, bringing their total investment in Croatia to close to 60 million euros.
