K KK etc[edit]

I reverted the article:

  • Kesko doesn't use the K...KK...KKK things any more (see their website),
  • the list items shouldn't be in bold as they aren't directly related to the article title, and
  • in Finnish, only the first word (or letter in this case) of proper nouns that have more than one word is capitalised (so it's K-market, not K-Market) - that's the way Kesko use it themselves, have a look at their website if in doubt.

K-citymarkets[edit]

The article states :

K-citymarket - huge hypermarkets with a surface area of around 10,000 square metres. About 50 of these, in major cities.

Are we sure that Finland has 50 "major cities"?. BScar23625 18:59, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Concentrated retail[edit]

WP:NOTFORUM

Kesko and S market have ca 80 % markets in retail in Finland. Satu Hassi has made a questionaire of it in the EU Parliament. In 2013 there was an initiative to change the law of competition. (Eduskunta puoltaa kaupan kilpailulakia HS 8.5.2013) This includes the change of the definition of ruling market position to 30 % of the markets. Kesko claims (HS 8.5.2013) that the indipendent sellers of Kesko can not be ruling in the markets. This has puzzled me. Kesko is partner in Fennovoima in order to rebuild nuclesr power. How can Kesko make such a decision since for sure many indipendent sellers are against the nuclear power? Indipendent sellers may lose markets but have no decision power.

Sustainability section reads like an advert[edit]

It also seems unnecessary to the article itself. 91.158.185.141 (talk) 22:43, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
