On Friday 18 August, Okay will open its 146th store in Anzegem. In the practical local supermarket on Statiestraat 75, customers can find everything to do their daily shopping quickly, inexpensively and conveniently. The shop covers 550 m² and is built with sustainable techniques and materials. Okay Anzegem's store manager Steven Ledure and his team of 10 are looking forward to welcoming their new customers.
Fresh and modern design
Okay Anzegem is the 146th Okay store in Belgium. The local supermarket is part of Colruyt Group's new generation of Okay stores and has a fresh and modern design. "In the freshmart, the broad passage and glass wall ensure a pleasant shopping experience. Our extensive range of daily fresh fruit and vegetables is shown to its full advantage," store manager Steven says. The offer of fresh products is indeed one of Okay's major assets: not only the fruit and vegetables, but also the dairy products, meat, charcuterie, fish and ready-to-eat meals on sale are all daily fresh. "We also placed a stand just outside the freshmart, that offers a wide range of meat, fish and veggie snacks to spend a nice aperitif evening with friends."
At Okay Anzegem, fresh bread is delivered every day and the co-workers bake off high-quality rolls and pastries several times a day. All these delicious products are presented in a handy bread unit. Steven: "Our bread corner is organised very ergonomically and well-arranged and thus very user-friendly, both for our customers and our co-workers." The frozen products department has chest-type freezers with glass lids. That way, customers can find their favourite products fast and easily.
The new Okay store is located on Statiestraat 75, the road connecting the railway station and the centre of Anzegem. "Our store is within biking and walking distance of the village centre. In other words, the store is ideally located for anyone who likes to leave the car on the side every now and then," Steven says.
There is sufficient parking space and two charging posts for electric cars have been installed. Customers who come by bicycle can use the spacious bicycle shed, which also has room for cargo bicycles.
Minimal environmental impact
Like the other Colruyt Group store formats, Okay is firmly committed to building sustainably and with a minimal ecological footprint. "At Okay Anzegem, we do not use gas or fuel oil, we generate our own energy using solar panels," Steven explains. "Moreover our environmentally friendly cooling emits 90 % less CO2 than a traditional cooling installation." The heat released by the refrigeration is also used to heat the store. The ventilation system recovers 75 % of the heat from the air.
