BUCHAREST (Romania), November 25 (SeeNews) - Romanian IT&C and electronics retailer Altex said on Thursday it has opened a new store in the southern city of Campina, Prahova county.
The 2,000 sq m store is equipped with digital signage, electronic tags and a smart lighting system which helps save electricity, Altex said in a press release.
Altex plans to install 676 photovoltaic panels on the store's roof - an investment worth 150,000 euro ($170,400). The rooftop installation will cover some 40% of the store's monthly energy consumption.
"We have already three stores in Prahova county, and next week it will we open the fourth," Altex commercial director Edvin Abdulachim said.
Earlier this month, Altex opened a new store in Resita, while in October, it opened a new store in Medias, central Romania and invested 5 million euro in a new store in Bucharest. The retailer invested another 5 million euro in a smart electronic label system for its stores last month.
Altex employs over 4,000 in its Altex and Media Galaxy stores in Romania. It also operates two online stores.
