Among them are the “Mokko” and “Perekrestok” stores with an area of ​​more than 1,500 square meters in Ufa, a car center with an area of ​​over 2,700 square meters in Belebey, as well as two shopping facilities in the Chishminsky district.

As it was emphasized at the meeting following the results of the half-year, the positive trend is also observed in the wholesale trade. The absolute value of trade turnover in Bashkortostan amounted to 470.9 billion rubles.
