On 30 March, Hornbach, a German home improvement store chain, celebrated the opening of its 17th store which amounts to 33 mio euros. The new store in Enschede in the Netherlands covers an area of 17 000 m² where customers can select out of 120 000 products. Around 150 employees work in the new store.
The company now owns eight stores in the Netherlands since the start 7 years ago. Currently, Hornbach prepares the opening of its 18th store in Nijmegen that should be a large home improvement store with a garden centre representing the third store in that province.
