Hebe expands to Bydgoszcz

Hebe, the health and beauty chain owned by Jeronimo Martins, is about to expand its presence in the Kujawsko-Pomorskie voivodship with the opening of its first store in Bydgoszcz, according to information obtained by Gazeta.pl.

The company reportedly signed a lease for retail space at the city’s DH Jedynak department store recently vacated by Empik, the books and multimedia chain, which reduced the size of its outlet there.

It will be Hebe’s second drugstore in the province, after Torun.

The chain is in the middle of a major store opening programme. In June it brought its store count to 40, and secured a lease for a third store in Poznan, at Galeria Debiec shopping mall, which will open in May 2014.
