Colruyt restyled and expanded its store in Neerpelt, Belgium

Neerpelt, Belgium, 2015-11-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — On Wednesday 28 October the renovated Colruyt store in Neerpelt will open its doors after a few months of renovation work. The store has been expanded by half and restyled into a new-generation Colruyt store.

New-generation store

Store manager Davy Tessens: “Colruyt regularly renovates its stores to make them more efficient and to make shopping for customers more agreeable. At the fresh market for instance, we replaced the plastic flaps with an air curtain, the employees wear comfortable working clothes, etc. When making renovations, we always aim at simplicity and the lowest costs, as our customers expect from us.

Larger fresh market and new butcher’s department

The renovated store covers about 1,800 m², or 1.5 times the old one. “This allowed us to expand the fresh market, increase the range of frozen products and add three check-out points“, says store manager Davy Tessens. “And thanks to wider aisles, our customers can shop even more briskly.

For fresh quality meat, customers can visit the brand-new butcher’s department. Head butcher Ivo Gielkens: “Our customers have a nice overview of the range of meat, cold cuts and salads. And they can see the butchers at work in an open workshop. Customers can easily talk to them if they have questions or special orders.

Collect&Go shops for the customer

Colruyt Neerpelt still has a Collect&Go pick-up point. Store manager Davy Tessens: “Collect&Go is the handy Colruyt service where we shop for our customers. They send us their shopping list over the Internet or using their PCs or smartphone, and we have their products ready at the pick-up point on the day and time of their choice. It’s a handy service, and they save time!

Special open evening

From Wednesday 28 October, store manager Davy Tessens, head butcher Ivo Gielkens and their 35 employees will be on hand to welcome their customers at the new Colruyt Neerpelt.
Davy Tessens: “The evening before, on Tuesday evening 27 October from 17.00 to 20.00, everyone is invited for a preview of the renovations. During this special open evening, customers will be offered snacks and a drink. Everyone is most welcome!
