On Thursday 10 March, the renewed Spar Compact Colruyt Group store in Lauwe will reopen. The supermarket was given a thorough facelift and will reopen as a Spar store of the new generation, with extra attention to fresh products, sustainability and the already well-known customer-friendly service.From now on, customers will find a bigger bakery at Spar Compact Lauwe and a PostPunt as well. In that way, the store hopes to meet the needs of the customers even better.
Small family business with 'girl power'
Store manager Ula Skwark for one is enthusiastic about the reopening. "Our Spar opened its doors more than 11 years ago. We have been giving our best with our team for years, but we could do even better," she says. With six female colleagues, Ula now runs a Spar store that was completely renovated in the style of the newest generation: "We form a small family company, so to speak. Six women that get along very well and love working together, something our customers can tell."
Fresh and modern design
At the end of February, Spar Lauwe closed its doors for two weeks because of the renovation works. The store was then given a fresh and modern design. All adaptations were fully done in the new style of Spar Colruyt Group to offer customers an even better shopping experience. "New checkouts, a new floor, a renewed parking space, and the entrance and outer walls were also taken care of. Our fresh department is one of the spearheads of our renewed store, with ultra-fresh vegetables and fruit. The assortment of our bakery will also be significantly bigger," Ula explains.
Collecting parcels from the postal service
The PostPunt that you can find in the store is completely new. "Because of corona, more and more people are ordering online. There is only one PostPunt in Lauwe, so we wanted to capitalise on that", Ula says. "But, without any doubt our greatest asset is the friendly and thoughtful service. The team is ready every day to welcome the customers personally and to serve them with a smile. Occasionally, we get help from students who get their first work experience in a nice environment."
In addition to an adapted shopping assortment, the team of Spar Compact Lauwe also collaborates with producers of delicious regional products. "For example, coffee lovers can discover the local "Grootmoeders Koffie" and we also have the regional beer 'Noë' on offer, for people who like to have a beer from time to time", Ula adds.
Spar Lauwe is looking forward to receiving its customers in the renewed store from 10 March. Moreover, there are many interesting promotions planned for customers that month on top of the existing promos and coupons in the Spar folder. Of course, all corona measures in force will be complied with.
