Strong decline in number of grocery stores in Poland in 2017

Bartosz Bolecki, Retail Analyst at PMR
The number of grocery stores in Poland declined in 2017 by almost 6%, year on year, according to Central Statistical Office of Poland (GUS) data. The decrease was caused mainly by a steep fall in number of general grocery stores (-6.9%). The number of general grocery stores declined for a sixth year in a row. The total number of specialist grocery stores in Poland declined in 2017 by 1.9%, year on year. Two categories recorded store count growth (bakeries, fishmongers), while in other three declines were observed (meat and charcuterie, fruits and vegetables, alcohol stores).
