EDEKA Minden-Hannover starts with the new MARKTKAUF building on Gutenbergstraße


New location, new market – in November, EDEKA Minden-Hannover will start building a new MARKTKAUF store on the site of the former real location on Gutenbergstrasse. As the owner and investor of the area, EDEKA Minden-Hannover would like to revitalize the shopping location that has been established for decades. “For the entire project development and the submission of the building application, we were in good, close coordination with the city at all times. We have had the building permit since the beginning of October,” explains Klaas Fechner, site developer at EDEKA Minden-Hannover. The demolition work on the existing building on the site has been underway since June of this year and will be completed in November.

Mayor Urte Schwerdtner is also pleased about this first important building block for the revitalization of the Gutenberg specialist store location: “The cooperation between EDEKA and the city of Goslar was very trusting and uncomplicated, so that the new building can now follow quickly after the demolition work. The modern building will have enormous appeal for the entire commercial area.”

The new MARKTKAUF building with a sales area of ​​around 5,000 square meters will be progressive and sustainable. Customers can look forward to a comprehensive range of over 65,000 items, generous service counters for meat, sausage, cheese and fish and even sushi freshly prepared on site. In the pre-checkout area, customers can expect a modern service counter for baked goods with an adjoining café and a spacious seating area. The EASY shopper will support customers with relaxed shopping. In addition, the checkout area will be equipped with self-scanning checkouts for quick shopping. The drinks department integrated in the store will have a separate entrance and its own cash register. Around 135 employees will ensure the best service, competent advice and customer satisfaction.

A photovoltaic system on the roof and a concrete core activation with heat recovery will reduce the energy footprint of the store. In addition, the energy balance of the store is optimized by the heat protection and the shading of the facades. The high-quality facade design will retain generous glass surfaces, especially in the entrance and café area. Part of the roof area will be greened. Charging stations for e-cars and e-bikes are provided in the parking lot. A total of around 350 spacious, ground-level parking spaces and around 50 covered bicycle parking spaces will be available in front of the market.
