On Wednesday 14 September 2022, Colruyt Antwerp Lange Elzen opens its doors. The original store has been demolished and made place for a completely new, bigger store with an own Collect&Go collection point. From Wednesday, you can again do your groceries at the lowest prices in Antwerp South. In addition, the new store will create 47 jobs in the neighbourhood, some of which are still vacant.
Choice from a broad assortment
The new Colruyt Lowest Prices at the Lange Elzenstraat is located on the ground floor of a residential complex with 33 apartments. It is a spacious store with a large assortment of quality products, both from known and private brands (Boni Selection and Everyday). Store manager Kristof Loontiens: "We are happy to welcome our customers in our brand-new store with a spacious fresh market and an extensive frozen products department. Customers can choose their fresh quality meat at the butcher's department with open store. There, you can see our butchers at work and easily talk to them if you have questions or special orders."
Sustainable choices, as always
In addition to the classic initiatives, such as heat recovery and energy-efficient led lighting, Colruyt Lange Elzen also has solar panels and a green roof with mosses, succulents, and grasses. This buffers the heat on warm days, purifies the air and ensures more biodiversity in the city. For the first time, recycled textile insulation was also used in the walls. A charging post for electric cars has been provided at the underground car park with 110 parking spots. Next to the entrance on the ground floor, there is room for 70 bicycles and electric bikes can also be charged.
Collect&Go does your shopping
With the new store, a Collect&Go collection point opens as well. Collect&Go is Colruyt Group's convenient online shopping service. Customers send their shopping list to collectandgo.be or the app, and the co-workers have their products ready at the collection point on the day and time of their choice. In this region, you can also have your groceries delivered at home via Collect&Go.
The team is still looking for reinforcements
Colruyt provides jobs in your region. Eventually, the team of the new store will exist of 40 store co-workers and 7 butchers. Around 10 job vacancies are still open for the Lange Elzenstraat. Store manager Kristof Loontiens: "Are you looking for a nice job in the neighbourhood? Then be sure tocheck out Colruyt Group's jobsite! We are always looking for motivated colleagues in the region of Antwerp."
