The brand new Louis Delhaize supermarket in the Keerdok car park in Mechelen, which has only been open for a year, will close its doors at the beginning of April. Not enough customers came. Colruyt Group wants to reopen the store later.
In January last year, there was great excitement among staff when Louis Delhaize Group opened a new neighborhood supermarket in Keerdok car park. The 700 square meter store was the first according to Louis Delhaize's new concept. Initially it was open even on Sundays, but the group soon abandoned that due to lack of success. Overall, Antonia Wolfstraat's new Louis Delhaize turned out to be not attracting large crowds.
Staff were recently informed of the plans. The seven employees could work at one of Colruyt's other stores in the area. They originally came from the Match store on Haverwerf in central Mechelen, where Spar is now located. The very old Smatch store on Borzestraat closed its doors last month. Colruyt Group will not undertake this.
