Only one branch – in Linz – the electrical retailer “Conrad” wants to continue operating in Austria. Only in April was it announced that most of the locations in Germany would close.
Reason: changing shopping habits
“This decision was tough for us, especially because of our employees, but ultimately we can’t get around these changed shopping habits,” said Conrad Austria CEO Markus Zettl.
In the future, the electrical retailer wants to focus more on online trade, he said. The B2B procurement platform for technical needs is also to be further expanded. It is not yet known how many employees will be affected by the closure of the Vienna “Conrad” stores.
