Kesko, one of the leading retailers in Finland has completely renovated and expanded K-Supermarket Hertta in Helsinki and the new Hertta opened its doors on 16th of November. During the renovation, Supermarket expanded by 2000 square meters which gave the opportunity to improve on customer services as well as to enhance the selection of groceries including the trendy vegetarian category. Hertta has a brand new 4-storey car park which aligns perfectly with the owner’s environmental commitment: car park features EV charging stations and before the end of 2017 more than 100 places for park&ride customers who can utilize neighboring metro to reach downtown destinations. To further underline their commitment to functionality and environmental awareness, Hertta selected Portier space-specific guidance solution that eliminates unnecessary driving and improves overall customer satisfaction. Solution includes also dedicated guidance displays for electric vehicles as well as disabled parking. Park&ride spaces availability will also be shared with Helsinki Regional Transport Authority which further encourages people to utilize public transport.
