Background to Byggmax’s establishment in Sisjön
The low-price retailer Byggmax opens a store in Sisjön in Gothenburg in Q3 2012. The store will employ four people, and approximately two to three seasonal employees. Byggmax has more than doubled the number of stores in Sweden since 2006. There are currently 62 stores throughout the country. The new store in Sisjön will be situated at Hantverksvägen 16. The company has previously announced the opening of stores in Malmö and Eslöv in Q2  2012.
- For a long time we have wanted to establish a location in Sisjön, and now we have found a good location for Byggmax, where a lot of people pass. Our stores in Kållered, Hisingsbacka and Partille are doing well, so it feels great to be able to open in Sisjön. Says Tony Johansson, regional manager at Byggmax.
Hantverksvägen in Sisjön is a good location, with a large space and the opportunity to establish Byggmax’s concept. Overall, a retail space of approximately 8000 sqm is necessary, where the retail store and the drive-in occupy the most space. Byggmax’s concept is based on offering customers quality products at a low prices, where customers can do a part of the job themselves to keep the costs down. Byggmax in Sisjön will be the fourth store in Gothenburg. Byggmax’s experience is that people in Gothenburg are competent DIY-customers and professionals who want quality at a low cost.
