Rossmann’s presence in Eastern Europe

The company is headquartered in Burgwedel, close to Hannover and, as of 2018 operated 2,150 stores in its home country. This was an increase of fifty new stores compared to the prior year. Outside of Germany the company opened twice as many new stores across eastern Europe, reaching 1,780 stores in total. More than half of these opened in Poland. The company is yet to expand its operations outside of Europe.

Drugstore market in Germany

Measured by revenue, Rossmann was the second-largest drug store chain in Germany in 2018. Its biggest competitor was the market leader dm (dm-drogerie markt GmbH + Co. KG) who achieved a revenue of 8.11 billion that year, or 1.45 billion more than Rossmann. The company from Karlsruhe generated a higher revenue despite having a smaller store footprint in the country than Rossmann. It was also the more consistently frequented drugstore between 2015 and 2018. The Müller Handels GmbH & Co. KG, with an even smaller store footprint generated an even higher revenue per store than both its competitors. It also had the highest reach per store operated.
