Colruyt opens brand-new store at Chastrès, Walcourt

Halle, Belgium, 2017-Mar-31 — /EPR Retail News/ — On Wednesday 29 March, a brand-new Colruyt store opens its doors at the Rue Saint-Donat 23 in Chastrès near Walcourt. This 236th Colruyt store has a surface of almost 1,000 m² and employs 24 co-workers.​

Store manager Bruno Delannoy: “Many locals already shopped at a more distant Colruyt store. That is why we looked for a suitable store location nearby. And we have found it in Chastrès.”

New-generation store
Colruyt Walcourt is organised according to the model for new generation Colruyt stores. Bruno Delannoy: “We design our stores in such a way that customers can shop in an efficient and pleasant environment. When making renovations, we always aim at simplicity and the lowest costs, as our customers expect of us.”

Self-service butcher’s shop
Customers can now choose their meat from the self-service butcher’s counter. Head butcher Fabian Joris: “The customers have a nice overview of the range of meat, cold cuts and salads, but also of the different fresh fish products and vegetarian dishes. Moreover they can see the butchers at work in an open workshop. Customers can easily talk to them if they have questions or special orders.

Special open evening
From Wednesday 29 March, store manager Bruno Delannoy, head butcher Fabian Joris and their 22 co-workers will be on hand to welcome their customers to the brand-new Colruyt Walcourt. Bruno Delannoy: “The evening before, on Tuesday 28 March from 5 to 8 pm, everyone is invited for a store preview. During this special open house, customers will be offered snacks and a drink. Everyone is most welcome!”
