About Holdbart

Holdbart is a chain specializing in selling groceries and other products at significantly reduced prices. The concept helps reduce food waste as the products, for various reasons, cannot be sold in regular grocery stores. The chain soon has over 20 stores in Norway and offers a wide range of products, including food, beverages, hygiene products, and household items.


Finding suitable premises for new Holdbart stores has been a challenge for the chain, as new locations must be zoned for grocery retail and adapted to the concept. The chain wanted a user-friendly tool to evaluate locations and monitor the progress of new stores.


Holdbart uses Plaace to evaluate existing and potential locations and to identify success criteria for further expansion. Plaace provides valuable insights into movement patterns and demographics. Additionally, Plaace enables them to monitor the development of new establishments.

“Plaace gives us access to valuable data and insights through a user-friendly platform , making it easier for us to make informed decisions about operations and expansion.”

Haakon Mortensen

CFO at Holdbart
