Alphamega Hypermarkets’ second distribution centre has been up and running for some time now, after being launched as part of the second phase of the Company’s e-commerce strategy. It is expected to help considerably in covering the demand island-wide for orders through the chain’s e-shop.
The Company’s new distribution centre, which is located in Limassol, will expand its coverage in Paphos and Limassol, while increasing deliveries. Certain coastal areas in the Paphos district, such as Polis Chrysochous, Argaka, Latchi, Neo Chorio, Kathikas, Akoursos, Koili, Mesa Chorio and Yiolou, are already being served by the second distribution centre, while the Nicosia distribution centre is expected to offer broader coverage in free Famagusta and Larnaca.
