Action opens three new stores in Ostrava, Olomouc and Pilsen
Action, Europe’s fastest growing non-food discount retailer, is opening its third store in Ostrava-Přívoz on August 25. The store, located in the retail park at Sokolská třída, is the company’s thirtieth Czech location. Next week, new stores will also open in Olomouc and Pilsen, both on Thursday, September 1.
Ostrava is gaining a new shopping destination with an ever-changing selection of high-quality products at the lowest prices. On a sales area of 800 sqm, Action offers customers a wide range of products across 14 categories, including DIY, household equipment, hobbies, decorations, toys, pet products, leisure equipment and personal care.
“Small prices, big smiles” is Action’s motto, and the company offers an average of 1,500 items costing less than CZK 25. Customers will find daily necessities in the store, as well as surprising and seasonal products to brighten up their day. The Ostrava store is open every day of the week starting from August 25, with opening hours from 8:00 to 20:00.
Action’s concept, surprising customers with low prices and 150 new items in stores every week, is already popular with millions of customers across Europe, and will also delight customers in Olomouc and Pilsen in the days ahead.
Olomouc will see its first Action store open on an area of 1,000 sqm in the shopping centre at Kafkova 1223/8. The Olomouc store will be open every day of the week from 08:00 to 21:00, starting September 1.
On the same day, Action will also open another store in Pilsen. Customers will find the new 700-sqm location in the retail park at U Hasičů street. The store in Pilsen will be open every day from 08:00 to 20:00.
“It’s thrilling to see three more Action stores opening in such short succession, allowing even more Czech customers to enjoy the Action shopping experience,” says Petr Juliš, Action General Manager for the Czech Republic. “Shoppers know that they will always find well-known brands in our stores as well as items they may not have expected, whether everyday necessities or seasonal goods. And customers in our new locations will see for themselves that in addition to high quality products, we offer the best prices on the market. This is what makes us unique.”
Sustainable sourcing and production are essential to Action’s philosophy of responsible growth. The company is taking action on climate change with a goal to reduce CO2 emissions throughout its operations by 50% by 2030 compared to 2020. By 2024, no Action stores will use gas heating.
70% of Action’s wood products and 86% of its cotton products are meanwhile sourced sustainably. This initiative is progressing faster than planned, and Action expects to achieve its goal to source 100% of these materials sustainably as early as 2024.
