Apparently for economic reasons, the Group is abandoning the mark Marktkauf in several of the originally more than 180 German locations. In addition to the transformation, there are also tough closures such as the Plärrer in Nuremberg or in Ahlen in Münsterland with 100 employees affected.
In the region it remains at name changes. The Marktkauf in Ingolstadt, Lena-Christ-Strasse, changed its name already last week. The consumer market remains Edeka branch, while in Neuburg former market leader Yalcin Pasahan will act as an independent tenant in the future. “We are happy about this step into self-employment,” says Edeka spokeswoman Regina Jud.
The existing range will hardly change, in addition to the food from Edeka “we will continue to offer noon food items,” said Yalcin Pasahan. So-called white goods such as refrigerators and washing machines, textiles or televisions and other electrical products remain on offer. All 55 full and part time employees would be taken over.
The market with a sales area of 3,000 square meters is regarded as having strong sales, especially since it has no competitors in the Neuburg North. The building belongs to a Düsseldorfer real estate company. In the former “new purchase” led an escalator to the upper floor to electrical trade, furniture, toys and restaurant. This phase is long gone. The first floor is empty, a revival has not succeeded.
