Colruyt reopens newly renovated Kortrijk store

Halle, Belgium, 2016-Dec-09 — /EPR Retail News/ — On Wednesday 7 December, the renovated Colruyt store of Kortrijk will open its doors after a few months of renovation work. The store has been expanded, restyled into a new-generation Colruyt store and equipped with a brand-new butcher’s department.

New-generation store
Store manager Nicholas Vermeersch: “Colruyt renovates its stores to make them more efficient and to make it nicer for customers to shop. For instance, near the fresh market we replaced the plastic flaps by an air curtain. When making renovations, we always aim at simplicity and the lowest costs, as our customers expect of us.”

Brand-new butcher’s department
“While the store was closed, we completely reorganised it”, says the store manager. “This enables customers to shop even more efficiently.”
For fresh quality meat, customers can visit the brand-new butcher’s department. Head butcher Tim Demeestere: “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 Kortrijk still has a Collect&Go pick-up point. Nicholas Vermeersch: “Collect&Go is the handy Colruyt service where we shop for our customers. They send their shopping list to or via the app, and the Collect&Go employees have their products ready at the pick-up point on the day and time of their choice.Handy!”

Special open evening
As from Wednesday 7 December, store manager Nicholas Vermeersch, head butcher Tim Demeestere and their 58 co-workers will be on hand to welcome their customers in the renewed Colruyt Kortrijk.

Nicholas Vermeersch: “The evening before, on Tuesday 6 December from 5 to 8 p.m., everyone is invited for a store preview. During this special open house, customers will be offered snacks and a drink. Everyone is most welcome!”
