First Launch of a New Silpo in 2020 Styled as an Intergalactic Spaceship in Dnipro 20.01.2020

Your interstellar journey begins on board a new supermarket that opened in Dnipro on January 18th, the first launch of Silpo in 2020. In the development of the design, the Silpo team was inspired by science fiction and used the theme of cosmic travel. Here, guests will experience the atmosphere of a space station and encounter aliens; they will be able to visit new galaxies and see the place where aliens shop for groceries.

The new Silpo store, located at 1 Topolyna Street in Dnipro with a total area of 942 square meters, is open fr om 8 am to 10 pm. In the shopping area, we placed a deli, a bakery with our famous buckwheat baguettes, a pool with live fish, sections with smoked fish and fresh meat, wh ere you can even order barbecue meat. Conveniently, guests can pay for their purchases quickly using five self-service cash desks in the check-out area.

This is the 13th Silpo supermarket in Dnipro and the third with a special thematic design. In 2019, in addition to the Le Silpo Delicatessen, the chain opened a bookstore-styled supermarket at 7 Fabra Street.

The Silpo supermarket chain has been experimenting with interior design since the beginning. Over five years ago, the retailer began designing its own thematic conceptual designs for individual supermarkets, and in 2018 expanded the experiment to the entire network. Now every new Silpo has its own design and additionally there is a program of updating the design and concept of existing stores (as of 01/01/2020, there are seven supermarkets with their own thematic design). Currently, Silpo is one of the few major grocery retailers in the world to create custom themed designs for each store.

The network has supermarkets styled after the Mavka Universe, Van Gogh, music theme, ancient printing house, yacht club/seaport, Asian culture, and the Wild West. There is even a Klingon language store (fictional language of the Star Trek universe) and a rock stars store. In 2019, three designer supermarkets were listed in the Europe's Finest Store 2019, the top 25 of the best innovative designs of European stores according to the European Supermarket Magazine.

Silpo is one of the largest Ukrainian chains of grocery stores in Ukraine with an assortment of around 76,000 grocery and related products, as well as products of its own brands and imports. The company’s project “Lavka Tradytsii™” (Eng. Traditional Shop) aims to support and develop small Ukrainian manufacturers, whose products can be purchased at Silpo and Le Silpo delicacies.

As of 18/01/2020, the retail chain has 259 supermarkets, including 4 Le Silpo delicacies.
