OKay Fosses-la-Ville reopens its doors after renovation
Friday 11 October will see OKay Fosses-la-Ville will reopen its doors after a thorough renovation. The store was refurbished in the style of the second generation of OKay convenience stores, which included an improved freshmart and a new bakery department.
Fresh and modern design
OKay Fosses-la-Ville closed its doors for some ten days for renovation work. The updated store now covers 474 m² and has a fresh and modern design. “This means we can provide our customers with even better service and play to our strengths”, says store manager Isabelle Waillez. “For example, our extensive range of fresh fruit and vegetables really are shown at their best. Fresh bread is delivered every day and our shop staff bake high-quality cakes and rolls in the updated bakery.” The tills have been adapted to serve customers even better. Finally, green areas were created in the car park, which has 45 parking spaces.
OKay Fosses-la-Ville is located just outside the village centre. “Over the years, we’ve built up a loyal base of customers made up of local residents and passers-by, who value our wide range of products, our friendly staff and the lowest prices in the area. Of course, together with my team I’m eager to keep this trend going in our new store”, says Isabelle.
OKay is Colruyt Group’s local supermarket format. Customers can find everything they need there. OKay stores are set up near town or city centres and guarantee the lowest prices in the neighbourhood. OKay opened its very first store on 14 January 1998 in Ertvelde and has since then been opening an average of 6 new stores every year. They intend to keep up this frequency in the years to come.
