Colruyt renames French collection points

Colruyt renames French collection points

Belgian supermarket chain Colruyt is going to rename its collection points for internet orders at French department stores to Collect & Go, the same as in Belgium. Up to now they were known as Colruyt & Go.

System expanding

In Belgium the concept of Collect & Go is implemented in most Colruyt locations, but in France it hasn’t developed as such: only seven of 63 locations have a collection point for purchases made through the internet, mainly in the east of the country.

 

In France customers can collect their products between 10:00 and 12:30 if they were ordered before midnight. A second time frame runs from 16:00 to 19:15. Those hours are slightly different from those in Belgium, where they run from 11:00 to 13:00 and from 15:00 to 19.45.

 

The service costs 5 euro in France, but is free for orders larger than 100 euro. In Belgium a fee of 5.5 euro is requested for Collect & Go.
