About OKay Compact
OKay Compact is the city concept of neighbourhood supermarket OKay. Traditional OKay stores are located along busy approach roads, close to town centres, while OKay Compact focusses on city centres. With an average surface of 350 m², the OKay Compact stores are smaller than a traditional OKay, where the average surface is 650 m². The assortment is somewhat more limited, although there are more on-the-go products, such as coffee, cooled beverages, and hot snacks. At OKay Compact, there are no shopping carts, only shopping baskets, to make the shopping go as smoothly and efficiently as possible. OKay Compact now has 13 stores, and the customer response is very positive. Neighbourhood supermarket OKay already has more than 140 branches, and in time sees potential for 180 stores.
