Mercadona has invested €12 million in a new warehouse, known internally as the Colmena (beehive). The property is located in Getafe and will cover the high demand for online purchases in the centre of Madrid as a result of coronavirus.
The company points out that “after reinforcing its online sales service in Valencia and Barcelona due to high demand in a context marked by the coronavirus crisis, Madrid is the next city to receive a boost”. The new warehouse employs 100 people and is located on the Los Gavilanes de Getafe industrial estate. It will serve the Retiro and Salamanca neighbourhoods and the Méndez Álvaro area.
