Quick and efficient shopping

The Colruyt Lowest Prices store in Antoing has been completely reorganised and the fresh market expanded. Store Manager Barbara Hurteux explains: "We are happy to welcome customers to our completely revamped store. In the fresh department, they will be able to choose from a wider assortment of fruits and vegetables, salads, ready meals.... For our fresh meat, they will be able to count on one of our 8 qualified butchers at any moment. From now on, they will work in an open workshop, thus making it easier to have contacts with our customers. Practical if you want to place a special order or ask information.  »

A special focus on sustainability

For the renovation, several sustainable choices were made. Colruyt is investing in more efficiency, and this is also the case for its store in Antoing. ​ For example, the department store is equipped with LED lighting and motion detectors, which allows it to make significant electricity savings. In addition, the store does not use any fossil fuels. It also has a system for recovering residual heat from refrigeration units, which reduces its greenhouse gas emissions by 90%. A charging post for electric vehicles has also been installed in the car park. Cyclists will find parking spaces to park their bicycles and cargo bikes.

The whole team is ready

The store manager continues: « My co-workers and I are looking forward to welcoming our customers back to our renovated store. Come and discover all the novelties, we will offer you a small welcome gift. See you on Wednesday 18 May, from 8:30 am! »
