This article offers a systematic analysis of the development of hypermarket chains in Poland, seeking rules and insights as regards the general location of such stores and their spatial diversity in Poland, as well as a prognosis regarding the further course of the process. Types of strategies of the main chains in respect of the geographical ranges to their activity were presented, as were times of entry on to the Polish market, preferences as regards general location, sizes of objects and ways of gaining market share in Poland through companies’ active adaptation of their strategies. The main source of information was a base detailing 377 hypermarkets. There are four identified growth stages: initial (to 1996), spreading (to 2001), concentration and consolidation (2002-2009) and saturation (2010 and later). - (BJ)
