Tuesday, August 29, 2023

On Wednesday 30 August, Okay Tremelo will reopen its doors after undergoing a thorough facelift. The local supermarket with a 635 m² store surface area has been renovated in the style of the latest generation of Okay stores, with a refurbished freshmart, additional cooling cabinets and a revamped check-out area, among other things. During the renovation, considerable efforts were made to minimise the environmental footprint. Store manager Cindy Van Dessel and her team look forward to welcoming their customers again.

Focus on fresh products and daily fresh bread

The fresh and modern design of the store helps customers find their way around the varied fresh products range. "In the freshmart our extensive range of fresh fruit and vegetables is shown to its full advantage," store manager Cindy explains. "We placed extra refrigeration units just outside the freshmart, so that we can showcase our tapas, cold sliced meat and pastries even better."

In Okay Tremelo, the store co-workers bake off quality bread, breakfast rolls and buns on site. "The checkout area also received an overhaul making payment at the checkout even smoother and faster from now on," Cindy says.

All these novelties and improvements contribute to a more pleasant shopping experience and make shopping even more efficient. The enthusiastic team of Okay Tremelo is all set to welcome its customers back in the renewed neighbourhood supermarket. “Every day, I can count on a great team of 11 motivated co-workers. All of them people from the region, for whom customer friendliness, good service and helpfulness always come first.”, Cindy says.


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 Tremelo. All energy is generated by our own solar panels and the store's eco-friendly cooling emits 90 % less CO2 than conventional cooling installations. In addition, the heat released by the cooling and ventilation system is recovered to heat the store.

Easy to reach by car and bicycle

Okay Tremelo has a very practical location and is easily accessible to everyone. The spacious and practical car park has room for 62 vehicles and cargo bikes can also be safely secured in the bicycle shed.
