The Homelux online store reached over 20,000 visits / day in 2019, and the average basket was 77 Euro.
The year 2019 was the first full year of operation of the online platform www.Homelux.ro. and the first 2 Homelux stores, located in Ploiești and Focșani. The results were good – retailer exceeded his estimates with a few digits, and the largest increase came from the online store.

In the next 4 to 5 years, we want to open up to 20 stores. Surely this year we will open 3 to 4 new stores. We target the big cities in the country such as Timișoara, Iași, Cluj, Constanța, Brașov, etc.” said Omer Susli, the owner of Homelux.
