Kaiser’s Tengelmann in the sale: Because the large retail chains can not agree to each store individually sold. Thousands of jobs could be cut. It is a small little rest of hope for the 15,000 employees.
Tengelmann boss Karl-Erivan Haub will usher in the new week, the smashing of the supermarket chain Kaiser’s Tengelmann. Interested parties are then invited to offer for each individual store. Haub sees in this method, up to 8,000 Points at risk.

The Tengelmann chief reiterated at the same time, he was “up to the last Minute for a friendly solution, the Kaiser’s Tengelmann as a Whole”. The “time window” being closed when the first branch was sold. This will take a few weeks.
Haub made Rewe chief Alain Caparros responsible for ensuring that, so far, not a compromise of the competitors, Rewe, Edeka, Norma and Striking. “Mr. Caparros has made everything from the start to destroy the Deal,” he said of the “WAZ”.
