The board of Ahold’s Norwegian ICA operations has decided to sell its ICA Maxi hypermarkets and superstores. The retailer plans to concentrate its Norwegian operations on discount store chain Rimi and the ICA Supermarket concept. This means ICA Norway will initiate a sales process for the company’s ICA Maxi stores. In 2010 the ICA Maxi stores posted sales of NOK3.04bn (£337.2m).
