Turkish hard discounter BIM has revealed details of its imminent entry into Egypt.

Speaking to the Financial Times, BIM chief financial officer Haluk Dortluoglu said the retailer intends to source 80% of its range from local small and medium-sized businesses.

“We’ll use a similar concept and layout [to Turkey], carrying 500 to 600 lines of food and non-food items,” Dortluoglu said.
