Being the second most developed city after Bucharest, Constanta is a major development spot for international investors.
Due to the very small amount of traditional markets (skind of grocery stores) -9; compared with the rest of the major cities that have over 50 each other, modern retail took over.
Major european retailers are present in malls or stand alone box units.
-Discount market: 2 Lidl, 2 Penny
-Supermarket: 4 Profi, Billa, 5 Mega Image, 4 Alfa Beta (local chain),
-Hypermarket: Carrefour, Auchan, 2 Real, Kaufland, Cora
-Cash and Carry: 2 Metro, 2 Selgros
-DIY: Bricostore, Baumax, Praktiker, 2 Dedeman (romanian chain)
