Dutch supermarket chain Jumbo opens a new supermarket in Balen, Antwerp. Those who like to chat can go to the ‘chat box’.

“The idea behind this is that you don’t feel the pressure or rush that you would otherwise experience at a regular cash register or self checkout,” says Martijn Vis, who will run the new branch. Available for busy people. Until now “.
The new Jumbo that opened on Wednesday is the 19th of the Dutch series in our country. About 45 people will go to work.
