Sonae is expanding the presence of its brands in the Centre of Portugal, namely in Figueira da Foz, with the opening of nine new stores, tomorrow, the 14th November. The new investment, which will reinforce the value proposition for customers in the Coimbra district, has generated over 110 jobs and occupies a total area of more than 3,700 square meters, representing, once again, a commitment to the expansion and geographic dispersion of Sonae’s brands in Portugal.

The new stores for Continente Modelo, Worten, Well’s, MO, note!, ZU, BAGGA, Washy and Dr. Well’s benefit from some of most recent and innovative formats of the Group’s brands, which have contributed to the preference of more and more customers nationwide and to the reinforcement of their competitive positions, combining a quality, diversified value proposition to the best deals.

The new Figueira da Foz Continente Modelo combines, in the same area, the atmosphere of traditional markets, such as the bakery, the butcher’s, the fishmonger’s and the area for fruit and vegetables. All the fresh food areas include information on the origin of the products, as well as local products, which reflects Continente’s continuous stake on national production. Socially speaking, Missão Continente will contribute to the local community through three organisations: Associação Novo Olhar, Associação de Solidariedade Social Viver em Alegria and APAFF - Ass. Protecção Animal da Figueira da Foz.

The shop also has an area where customers can collect orders placed online.

In books, stationery and gifts, note! unites, in a single space, a vast value proposition for those who believe we can be happier if we’re inspired.
