Revamped Colruyt Knokke Opens as a Low-Energy Store

Halle, Belgium, 2017-Jun-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — On Wednesday 14 June, the revamped Colruyt Knokke will open its doors after months of renovation. The store has been completely rearranged, refurbished into a low-energy store and restyled into a new-generation Colruyt store.

Fresh and modern design

“During closure, we completely rearranged the store”, store manager Tine Gilté says. “Customers can now shop even more efficiently in a more congenial store.  When making renovations, we always aim at simplicity and the lowest costs, as our customers expect us to.”

Low-energy store

Extra insulation was added to the facades and the roof and the store was made air-tight. All this has turned Colruyt Knokke into a low-energy store, able to take the step towards sustainable techniques, such as a propene cooling installation.
This project forms part of a wider wave of renovations of Colruyt Group, that wants to only have low-energy stores under its own management by 2029. This should reduce its CO2 emissions by another 4 %.

Brand-new butcher’s department

In the renovated Colruyt store the fresh market and the range of frozen products have been expanded.
For fresh quality meat, customers can visit the brand-new butcher’s department. Head butcher Filip Martens: “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 Knokke still has a Collect&Go pick-up point. Tine Gilté: “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 house

Store manager Tine Gilté, head butcher Filip Martens and their 38 employees are looking forward to welcoming their customers at the revamped Colruyt Knokke as of Wednesday 14 June.
Tine Gilté: “The evening before, on Tuesday 13 June from 17.00 to 20.00, everyone is invited for a store preview. During this special open house, we will gladly offer our customers some refreshments. Everyone is most welcome!”
