KESKO CORPORATION PRESS RELEASE 26.03.2015 AT 11.00 1(1)

Kesko opened the sixth K-ruoka store in St. Petersburg

Kesko today opened a new K-ruoka store in St. Petersburg. The store is located
in a property owned by Kesko at Shuvalovsky Prospekt 45.

The K-ruoka store is the chain's sixth store. It is located in the fast
growing northern part of the city, in the former K-rauta building, which
became vacant when K-rauta moved to larger premises at Parashutanya Ulitsa
60.

According toKari Heiskanen
, Kesko Food's Country Director for Russia, the K-ruoka stores in St.
Petersburg have been excellently received.

- Customers have appreciated the concept that focuses on freshness, high
quality and Finnish products. Based on the good experiences, Kesko will
continue to make capital expenditures in Russia and carefully consider every
new capital expenditure. The next two K-ruoka stores that are being built
will open in May and June.
