Model store and reference for Raiffeisen Markets

After five months of construction, a model store and reference for Raiffeisen Markets has been erected, in which a ground-breaking shop design and range concept has been implemented. The creation of experience worlds combined with an individual customer orientation – these two challenges of modern retail will be implemented in a professional manner at the Raiffeisen Market in Emsdetten. The shop design will focus on emotionalisation.

“We live and breathe customer proximity!”

“The strengths of the cooperatives and Raiffeisen Markets will be emphasised according to the motto of 'We live and breathe customer proximity': the reflection on the rural roots and local products. Local ties, the range’s top quality and first-rate advice are our trumps,” explained Thomas Wiesner, head of the Retailing section at AGRAVIS.

A site of around 6,000 m² in size is available at Grevener Damm 99 in Emsdetten. “A modern retail venue is established here,” described Martin Walbelder, Managing Director of Raiffeisen Bever-Ems eG.
