Report: Russsian grocers merge to deter Wal-Mart

BY CSA STAFF

New York City — Two of Russia’s largest grocery store chains, Pyaterochka and Kopeika, said on Monday that they would merge their operations in a move that would better position them to compete with Wal-Mart Stores, which is expected to enter the Russian market, according to the New York Times.

The deal, worth about $1.7 billion including the assumption of debt, was also a sign of renewed confidence in the Russian consumer market, which has been picking up because of rising prices for oil and other commodities that Russia exports, the report said.
