Albert Heijn opens second Belgian store later this month

Dutch retail chain Albert Heijn will open its second Belgian store in Stabroek on October 26th.RetailDetail had already announced the location in March (link in Dutch): like the first Belgian AH in Brasschaat, the new one is owned by Nathalie and Marco Van Ende.

 

Just like Brasschaat, Stabroek is located between Antwerp and the Dutch border, an area where many Dutch people have settled. The new store resides in an almost completely renovated complex that also holds 20 flats and retail space for chains like Hubo, Zeeman and Standaard Boekhandel. Albert Heijn started its international operation in Belgium in March, with a move to Germany set to follow in 2012. The first Belgium store attracted a lot of attention from the media, but local competitors say many customers have already returned to their normal stores for their shopping.
