Last Friday, Mercadona confirmed that it will be installed in the space left by Eroski on the Ruta de la Plata in 2020. After months of negotiations, the Valencian firm has finally decided to open a new store in this space, which joins the other three that already has in the capital of Caceres. This opens a job opportunity for the 90 promer employees who lost their jobs after the closure of Eroski last November.
In fact, the Eroski has already contacted Mercadona to request that it count on its staff with the dismissed employees. The employees (both the cooperative members and the employees) received the corresponding compensation for 30 days per year worked with a maximum of 18 monthly payments.
Mercadona will use 3,000 square meters of the nearly 10,000 that Eroski has released. Half will use them for the sale surface and the other half for warehouses. Although for now the Valencian chain has not announced how many people it will hire for this new store, the objective of the temporary work company is to relocate as many employees as possible.
