Dutch retailer Jumbo has announced plans to enter the East Flanders region in Belgium with the launch of a new supermarket in Beveren by the end of this year.
The retailer will also open a new store in Sint-Lamberchts-Herk in the Limburg province.
It will be the third Jumbo store in Limburg, after Lanaken and Pelt, the retailer added.
Peter Isaac, managing director of Jumbo Belgium, said, “We want to grow to around a hundred Jumbo stores over time, and to achieve this ambition, we are actively looking for employees in all provinces of Flanders.
“In this way, we can introduce people throughout Flanders to the Jumbo formula. I am confident that we will get this done.”
Wide Range Of Products
The new stores will provide the residents of Beveren and Sint-Lambrechts-Herk access to a wide range of products at low prices.
The product offering will include unique Jumbo products, such as Wapenaer cheese and the La Place range.
It will also offer a range of Belgian classics, such as prepared stew, vol-au-vent, prepared, and quality meat of Belgian origin.
Each store will create employment for around 70 people and offer the best customer service, the retailer said.
