French retailer Auchan has opened its second DIY-hypermarket under Leroy Merlin brand in Rostov, Kommersant reports.
The 16,700-square-meter hypermarket is reportedly located next to Auchan hypermarekt in the city's Northern residential district.
The hypermarket opening was postponed twice since the beginning of 2009 due to market stagnation, Kommersant said.
Under plans, two more Leroy Merlin hypermarkets are to be opened in Russian by the end of the year.
