Kaufland is definitely here
AFR reported that the German supermarket chain is building up its executive team in Australia (and sending them to Germany for training). So far, two locations have been secured for Kaufland: in Adelaide and in Melbourne. Kaufland operates large footprint outlets (20,000 sqm). It should be noted that Kaufland’s parent, Schwarz Group, also owns the discount chain Lidl. If Lidl starts opening stores in Australia, this will be the next nail in the coffin of the local operators.
