Halle, Belgium, 2016-Apr-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — On Wednesday 30 November the renovated Colruyt store in Haaltert will open its doors after a few months of renovation work. The store has been expanded by half its original size and restyled into a new-generation Colruyt store.
Store manager Joel Steeman: “Colruyt regularly renovates its stores to make them more efficient and to make shopping for customers more pleasant. At the freshmarket, for instance, we replaced the plastic flaps with an air curtain. When making renovations, we always aim at simplicity and the lowest costs, as our customers expect from us.”
Wider product range and new butcher’s department
The store’s sales area has been expanded to 1,500 m². Customers can now find a wider assortment in every department, in both the food and the non-food section. The freshmarket and the frozen products department for instance are now considerably larger. For fresh quality meat, customers can visit the brand-new butcher’s department. Head butcher Danny Breynaert: “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.”
2 extra check-out points – 8 in total – ensure an even smoother service. The also parking area has been expanded by half its size.
Collect&Go shops for the customer
Colruyt Haaltert now also has a Collect&Go pick-up point. Store manager Joel Steeman: “Collect&Go is a handy Colruyt service where we shop for our customers. They send us their shopping list over the Internet or using their smartphones, and the Collect&Go employees 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 30 March, store manager Joel Steeman, head butcher Danny Breynaert and their 37 employees – 3 more than in the old store – will be on hand to welcome their customers at the revamped Colruyt Haaltert.
Joel Steeman: “The evening before, on Tuesday 29 Match from 17 to 20, everyone is invited for a store preview. During this special open house, customers will be offered snacks and a drink. Everyone is most welcome!”
