Jumbo to open three more Belgian stores


Dutch supermarket chain Jumbo is planning to open three more Belgian stores in the coming weeks. This would lift the total to eleven stores in Belgium, including a first in the coastal province West-Flanders.


First in West-Flanders

A press release announces three new store openings for Jumbo in Belgium: two in the north-eastern province of Limburg (Zonhoven on 30 June and Heusden-Zolder on 14 July), with in between them a first store in West-Flanders (Zedelgem on 7 July). This would lift Jumbo's total to eleven Belgian stores, and the retailer confirms its earlier ambition to have a hundred stores in Belgium in the long run.


Managing director Peter Isaac says he is confident that his chain's stores and concept are a success with Belgians. "We want to expand to 100 stores and therefore we are looking for suitable locations and employees in the whole of Flanders."
