Revamped Okay Affligem to reopen as a sustainable neighbourhood supermarket on 22 May

With a Collect&Go collection point, a renovated bread corner and a refurbished freshmart

Tuesday, May 21, 2024

On Wednesday 22 April, Okay Affligem will reopen its doors after undergoing a thorough facelift. The local supermarket with a 600 m² store surface area has been renovated in the style of the latest generation of Okay stores, with a Collect&Go collection point, a renewed bread corner, a refurbished freshmart, additional cooling cabinets and a revamped checkout area, among other things. This makes shopping even easier at Okay Affligem. During the renovation, considerable efforts were made to minimise the environmental footprint. Store manager Jannick Vastenavondt and his team look forward to welcoming their customers again.

Focus on fresh products and daily fresh bread

The fresh and modern design of Okay Affligem helps customers find their way around the varied fresh products range. "In the freshmart, the wide aisles ensure a pleasant shopping experience. It's easy to choose from our ample offer of fruit and vegetables, dairy, meat, charcuterie, fish and ready-made meals, tasty and fresh like you are used to at Okay," store manager Jannick says. "Right outside the freshmart, we've also installed some additional cooling cabinets, offering an extensive choice of meat, fish and vegetarian appetisers to enjoy with family or friends."

In Okay Affligem, the store personnel bakes off quality bread, breakfast rolls and buns on site, which are all neatly and orderly displayed in the renewed, well-organised bread corner. "The checkout area also received an overhaul making payment at the checkout even smoother and faster from now on," Jannick explains. "As from 22 May, customers can also pick up their Collect&Go order at our store."

All these novelties and improvements contribute to a more pleasant shopping experience and make shopping even more efficient. "And every day, a great team of 12 motivated employees is ready to help our customers.All of them people from the region, for whom customer friendliness, good service and helpfulness always come first.

Minimal environmental impact

Like the other Colruyt Group store formats, Okay is firmly committed to building sustainably and with a minimal ecological footprint. No gas or fuel oil is used at Okay Affligem and the store's eco-friendly cooling emits 90% less CO2 than traditional cooling installations. The heat released by the cooling and ventilation system is recovered to heat the store. Rainwater is collected so that it can steadily seep into the ground to replenish the soil water, thus also relieving the sewer system.

Easy to reach by car and bicycle

Okay Affligem has a practical location along a connecting road, so it is easy to reach for everyone. The spacious and practical car park has room for 50 vehicles and cargo bikes can also be safely secured in the bicycle shed. [AD1] [PK2] [HDG3]
