All change for local supermarket

THE EROSKI supermarket located within the l’Aljub centre in Elche has seen its floor space reduced by two thirds. 

Of the current 9,000m2 it occupies it will only be left with 3,000m2 and a consequence will be that the Eroski workforce will be cut by at least 20 people.  The space that will no longer be controlled by the supermarket – although still owned by it – will be offered to other companies to occupy.

Over 100 people worked in Eroski at the start of this year, with 70 of them on permanent contracts, and in recent months they have begun to reduce the numbers of staff that included some departmental heads.

At this stage, it’s not clear which company will take over the available new areas or whether Eroski will continue with the overall management.  For the present, they will continue to run the discount petrol station close to the l’Aljub entrance.
