Renovated Colruyt Jette opens on 9 November

Monday, November 7, 2016

On Wednesday 9 November the renovated Colruyt store in Jette will open its doors after a few months of renovation work. This new-generation Colruyt store has been expanded and completely reorganised.It is built on pillars and is equipped with a moving walkway and a lift. The butcher's department has also been completely renovated.



New-generation store

Store manager Fabrice Peeters: "Colruyt renovates its stores to make them more efficient and to make it nicer for customers to shop. For instance, near the fresh market we replaced the plastic flaps by an air curtain. When making renovations, we always aim at simplicity and the lowest costs, as our customers expect of us."


Wider aisles and a new butcher's department

"We completely reorganised the store and widened the aisles", the store manager explains. "This enables customers to shop even more efficiently. The fresh market has also been enlarged. For fresh quality meat, customers can visit the brand-new butcher's department. Head butcher Cindy Van den Borre: "Our customers have a nice overview of the range of meat, cold cuts and salads. And they can see the butchers at work in an open workshop. Customers can easily talk to them if they have questions or special orders."

Customers can now smoothly reach the store (level 1) by means of the lift or the moving walkway.


Collect&Go shops for the customer

Colruyt Jette still has a Collect&Go pick-up point. It has been renovated and expanded, and it moved to the other side of the covered car park. Fabrice Peeters: "Collect&Go is the handy Colruyt service where we shop for our customers. They send their shopping list to or via the app, and the Collect&Go employees have their products ready at the pick-up point on the day and time of their choice.Handy!"
