Ahold Delhaize to open 350 new outlets in Belgium
The Belgian-Dutch distribution group Ahold Dehaize announced that it aimed to accelerate growth by opening about 350 stores and supermarkets in three to four years.
In addition to opening 200 new Fresh Atelier and Shop&Go stores, which it announced in late October, the group plans to add 100 new supermarkets, and 30 to 50 Albert Heijn supermarkets in Flanders.
“Delhaize will pursue its growth path in 2019 with a solid commercial plan,” the group stated. “With this growth plan Delhaize will strengthen its position on the Belgian market through accelerated growth, both online and offline. That will be done in combination with Albert Heijn’s growth plans.
