Halle, Belgium, 2017-Oct-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — On Wednesday 25 October, Bio-Planet, DreamLand and Dreambaby open the doors of a brand-new joint location in Mol. The former Center Shop made way for a new construction big enough for the three Colruyt Group stores and good for about thirty jobs. On Tuesday 24 October, all neighbours are welcome for a drink, a snack and a guided tour at the opening reception between 6 and 8 pm.
Advantages of joint location
By putting up different store formats on the same location, Colruyt Group wants to work even more efficiently and cost-consciously. The group wants to stimulate synergy between the stores that have a lot in common despite their different product ranges. The retailer uses the so-called combi-sites to make the lives of its customers easier by meeting their different needs. The combination of Bio-Planet, DreamLand and Dreambaby opens on the same location for the first time. Colruyt Group already opened another combi-site earlier in Namur (2016 – Colruyt, DreamLand, Dreambaby and Colruyt Group Academy) and in Charleroi (August 2017 – Bio-Planet and Dreambaby).
Low-energy store for Bio-Planet
For Bio-Planet it is the 27th store in Belgium and the 2nd in the Kempen, after Turnhout. Bio-Planet offers a complete supermarket supply with a little extra. It guarantees a carefully selected organic, ecological and healthy range of products. On a store surface of 650 m², customers can find a unique supply of more than 6,000 products among which quite a lot of gluten- and lactose-free references and more than 500 flavours in the fresh products department. Every month, Bio-Planet introduces about sixty new products to inspire the customer to consume consciously.
Bio-Planet Mol was built with sustainable techniques and materials and offers a pleasant shopping experience with fifteen competent co-workers at the customer’s service. The store also has an environment-friendly cooling system on propane. Furthermore it has a rain water buffer, a ventilation system that recycles 15 % of the warmth in the air and led lighting.
