Dutch retailer Albert Heijn has announced that it is set to open a fourth Home Shop Center (HSC) hub, in Eindhoven, which is tailored to service the retailer's growing online offering.
The opening of the new HSC brings to 25 the number of national and local hubs operated by Albert Heijn to service its home-shopping network. It also operates HSCs in Rotterdam, Almere and De Meern.
The new Eindhoven facility will be 18,000 square metres in size and employ around 800 staff members once fully operational.
