Rossmann revealed its new flagship drugstore in one of the largest shopping centres in Europe in Poland, Lódz.

The ‘space’ store

The drugstore chain highlighted the opening of its new store as ‘its step into the future’. The modern format is designed to create a futuristic feel, where the latest technologies and brands that are in line with the latest global trends are offered to encourage testing and an enjoyable shopping experience.

The store is divided into four zones:

Refill station zone

This zone allows customers to refill reusable bottles with products such as shampoo, shower gel or washing up liquid. This is an effort to reduce plastic consumption. The zone also stocks Rossmann’s own brand of cosmetics range, ‘Maunfaktura Piekna’ which includes 250 products created with natural and vegan-friendly ingredients and packed in eco-friendly packaging.
