I’ve been researching supermarket innovation recently and this popped up…MPreis is the best value full range supermarket in Austria but its looks are certainly deceiving. Its Tyrol’s most popular supermarket serving 150,000 customers a day and you can see why below. For further great images folloew the link at the bottom of the image. Incidently their website is a stunner too. Tesco, Sainsburys and Waitrose pleeeeese take heed!
