Focus on fresh products and daily fresh bread

The fresh and modern design of Okay Stekene helps customers find their way around the varied fresh products range. "In the renewed freshmart, it's easy to choose from our ample offer of fruit and vegetables, dairy, meat, fish and ready-made meals, all tasty and fresh like you're used to at Okay," store manager Olivier explains. “Also, we have created extra room right outside the freshmart for a wide range of meat, fish and veggie snacks and delicious pastries."

Customers can easily find them in the well-organised bread corner. “The checkout area received an overhaul and customers can now also pick up their Collect&Go order at our store," says Sarah, who has been part of Okay Stekene's store team since its opening in 2004 and has been a store manager there for several years now. ​
