MAXIMA is the Lithuanian retail market leader. It is the largest Lithuanian capital company and the biggest employer in the Baltic States.The history of the largest retail trade network in the Baltic States began in 1992, when several stores were opened in Vilnius under different trademarks. Today, we can boldly say that the history of building up the retail chain MAXIMA is a success story, as no other company has gained such financial success, awareness in the society, and appreciation by the buyers from the time of declaration of independence in the Baltic States.
Over 550,000 buyers visit different formats of MAXIMA stores in Lithuania every day. As on the 1st of January 2016, there were 234 stores operating in Lithuania.
Our goal is for MAXIMA to become the most convenient store for the buyers, therefore we pay most of our attention to the convenience. For us, convenience means giving our customer the possibility to find goods placed in a clear, orderly and uniform manner. For the buyer, convenience means the doubtless value for money, the possibility to reliably buy everything in one place.
Referring to different buying needs, we have developed stores of various sizes: MAXIMA X, MAXIMA XX and MAXIMA XXX. Each size is set according to a certain standard, so that buyers could easily orientate and find the necessary goods. A part of the retail space MAXIMA XX and MAXIMA XXX shopping centres is leased to specialized shops, to make sure that the customers can find all the goods and services in one place. MAXIMA X is a community store close to one’s home, where people go every day to buy the necessity goods without spending much time in the store.
MAXIMA stores are easy to find, as they operate in big cities, small towns and district centres. MAXIMA is also working on supplementing the product and service range and making them more accessible to customers, as well as making them of higher quality than those already existing in the market.
Žydrūnas Valkeris, who has worked for the Company for many years, has been the head of the MAXIMA retail chain in Lithuania since the 26th August 2014.
