Additional hearing: The number of sale-to-order-selection products held at the local stores is planned to be limited from the beginning of year 2019

There are currently about 40 sale-to-order selection products / local store.

There is a big difference between the stores, so the aim is to limit over-emphasized portion of sale-to-order selection products in the store selection.

Planned size-specific limits are:

XS 10
S   15
M   20
L    25
XL  30

Especially traditional customer types in the local stores appreciate the constancy of the selection and ease of purchase. Alko also want to control the fragmentation of total demand and improve predictability.

Making an online shop order in the store will be introduced in the end of this year and sale-to-order selection products can be ordered directly from the store by the customer. Change concern local stores, the number of sale-to-order selection products are not limited in the specialist stores and premium stores. The number of locally available sale-to-order selection products (T3-products) is not limited.
