The partnership between Petrom and Auchan Retail Romania started in 2017 with a pilot phase that included opening MyAuchan convenience stores in 15 Petrom filling stations, both in urban and rural areas of Romania. This pilot phase was aimed at testing the business model and to allow partners to evaluate the potential of the partnership.

“The partnership could substantiate even more Petrom’s brand propositions as MyAuchan convenience shops perfectly complement Petrom’s core benefits of quality fuels, affordable prices and filling stations conveniently placed for clients. Through this partnership, clients would shop from the supermarket without worrying about prices and Petrom filling stations network would be able to enhance customer experience”, said Radu Căprău, member of OMV Petrom Executive Board, responsible for Downstream Oil.

“This large-scale cooperation is part of the Auchan Retail Romania’s ambition to bring our stores closer to all Romanians. Our partnership with OMV Petrom, initiated in 2017 with a pilot phase, was very useful for both companies and was a real help for us to improve our proximity offer by finding the best tailored ranges of products and services and, of course good prices”, said Ionut Ardeleanu, General Manager Auchan Retail Romania.

Existing MyAuchan stores in Petrom stations feature a wide range of up to 3000 products from high-quality food, including ready meals, fresh coffee, fresh products and groceries, to non-food products, including cosmetics, baby products and car accessories. The offering varies depending on the size of the Petrom filling stations.

Further details on the extension of the partnership will be available at a later date, after finalization of discussions.
