Grocery store as a business in Slovenia, Europe

Anyone can register an LTD in Slovenia and start a grocery store business. If you are non an EU citizen, you can open grocery store in Slovenia as well.

The main business activities that you have to register are:

  • Agents involved in the sale of food, beverages and tobacco (46.170).
  • Agents involved in the sale of a variety of goods (47.190).
  • Retail sale in non-specialised stores with food, beverages or tobacco predominating (47.110).

Business activity with the code 47.110 includes: sale in grocery store with food, beverages and tobacco, as well as sale of various other goods, such as clothing, furniture, household appliances, metal products, cosmetics, toys, sports articles, etc.

Not so long ago these activities were much more regulated. To perform them education was required, as well as the owner had to report opening hours to the Administrative unit. Now these conditions do not exist anymore and that is why it is much easier also for foreigners to open a grocery store in Slovenia.
