Red&White (Russian: Красное&Белое) is a Russian retailer with a network of eponymous self-service shops. The network bills itself as "shopping at home." Although the shops have a wider range of products than liquor stores, their main business is the sale of prepackaged alcoholic beverages.[3] The head office is located in Chelyabinsk. Also, the company has 18 regional offices.

The word "Red" in the name represents wine, and "White" represents vodka.[4]

History[edit]

In the early 1990s, Sergei Studennikov founded SPS, a holding company engaged in the distribution of alcohol and tobacco. The first shop called "Red&White" was opened in Kopeysk on 11 August 2006. By the end of the year, the network consisted of 8 stores. in 2007, the chain had expanded to 38 stores. In 2014, the network consisted of 1,700 stores in 27 regions. In July 2015, the network of Red&White included more than 2,500 stores in 39 regions.[5] In 2016, the company had more than 3,000 stores and 4 distribution centers. In 2017, Forbes reported Red&White as having 4,715 stores.[6]

Activities[edit]

As of February 2017, the company's network includes 3,957 stores, with more than 850 stores opened over the past year in 40 regions of Russia. Of these, more than a 1,000 are in the Urals Federal District. Due to the large size of the network, the company is able to sell about 30 items under its store brand, and is a key customer for some manufacturers.[3]

All shops are connected to Russia's Unified State Automated Information System (USAIS), an automated system for state control over the volume of production and distribution of ethanol and alcoholic drinks.[7]

In an average trading area of 80 square metres (860 sq ft), each store stocks about 700 varieties of wine and distilled beverage, about 100 beers, 60 to 70 brands of cigarettes, and approximately 300 items of related products such as groceries, confectionery and pickles.[4]
