MERCADONA’s boss has said he doesn’t fear Amazon’s new online shopping service.
Juan Roig also confirmed that the Spanish supermarket giant would not start opening on Sundays.
Mercadona made €611 million in 2015 but lost €30 to €40 million in online sales.
“I am not going to talk about Amazon,” Roig said
“It’s a big company that has its strategies as we have ours. So far we haven’t been profitable on the internet [and so] that is not our priority.”
Roig added that he would try to ensure Mercadona’s website is ‘more like 2016 and less like 1998’.
