Looking back, we are proud to point out how much has been done over the years. In 1994, when the first store was opened in Kaliningrad, nobody thought that after a few years «Baucenter» will turn into a federal network of hypermarkets. Over these years the company has gone through two major crisis of the Russian economy - not to say that without losses, but "Baucenter" survived and continues to operate successfully. We have done a lot to look with confidence to the future. And, of course, the main result of our work is recognition and respect of our customers and partners
