It has been operating in Norway since 2014 and has 22 stores there. Last year Rusta entered the German market, where it has two stores, with another three expected to open this year. Its acquisition of Hong Kong brings the number of stores in the Rusta Group to more than 150, with anticipated annual sales of nearly SEK 7 bn.
