This new store results in the creation of 40 new stable quality jobs.
This new efficient store offers innovations in all sections with improvements at the environmental, technological and service levels, with the aim of optimising the total shopping experience of its customers.
With an investment of 4 million euros, the construction of the new supermarket involved 81 suppliers, employing more than 230 employees during the construction phase.
The new online “Lab”, initially available in Valencia's city centre, is born to test, learn and improve the service, as well as expand it to the rest of the city and towns nearby in the following months.
This new online shopping system coexists with the current one for the rest of areas and cities, and has a brand-new website and mobile app to make the shopping process faster and easier.
The online project has been designed to offer a better shopping experience for the client. The company is considering the deployment of different initiatives, such as the ad-hoc designed 3-temperature vehicle which reduces time of transport and unloading, and guarantees freshness.
The team is made up of 240 people, among which are computer engineers, designers, product managers, warehouse personnel, fresh department specialists like in the stores, delivery people and customer service.
Mercadona has invested €12 million in the construction of the new distribution centre for online shopping in the Vara de Quart industrial area of Valencia.

The company increases its staff from May to September to accommodate the arrival of tourists and maintain its excellent service.
