Maxima Latvija has been given the go-ahead by independent experts to re-open its supermarket at the Sahara shopping center in Riga, reports LETA.

The supermarket was closed down and evacuated on Dec. 6 amid potential threats to load carrying capacity, Riga City Council construction board officials said.

Now experts concluded that the safety of the building's construction is sufficient and is no threat to visitors.
