The Sicilian chain Angiolucci ? the only remaining chain bearing the name, the other branch having been acquired by Salmoiraghi & Viganò ? has opened a new outlet in Catania, close to the airport, in an Auchan shopping mall. This brings the chain to a total of 14 outlets, but another store located in a less fortunate shopping mall is about to close, which will soon take the number back down to 13 again. There are few new openings planned, as the chain has reinvested profits in redesigning existing stores and in staff training. This policy has helped maintain the stable sales during the past two years' recession, while the first quarter of 2010 has seen a 10 percent increase.
