First “Maxima Express” convenience store opened on Telegraph Offices in Old Riga!

First Maxima Express convenience store on Audēju Street 15 in Riga Old town opened on July 18th.

“Recognising the varied shopping habits and needs of our customers during the busy working day, we are continuing to expand and modernise the Maxima store chain. In the very heart of Riga Old Town, at the Maxima Express store on Audēju Street, we have installed a large cafe lounge area where office workers and visitors to the city will be able to enjoy food-to-go meals such as our freshly prepared craft burgers, kebab and other food at accessible prices. This will also be our first store offering not only a wide range of hot drinks, but also freshly-squeezed orange juice,” explains Maxima Latvija Board Member Kristīne Āboltiņa.

The premises of the Old Town Maxima Express store were fully adapted to the needs of the store within three months, creating a 176 sqm shopping area. The total area of the store is 241 sqm, and it includes modernised utilities, a completely new interior, and energy – efficient LED lighting. There are 10 service focused staff members to serve customers every day, while one self-service checkout and modern warehouse lifting equipment have been installed to make the work of employees easier.
