Delahize thus increasing the capacity of its e-commerce services by 30%. “This means more space, more vans and more staff so we can significantly increase the number of customers who receive their orders at home,” said spokesman Roel Deckelver.
The supermarket chain will extend its working hours at the end of the year. On Wednesday, December 23 and 30, the stores will be open from 7:00 to 20:00, one hour earlier than the rest of the year.

“Fresh products at the last minute”

Aldi also relies on smaller parts. “For example, we have champagne in a 37.5-liter bottle. “Our end-of-year range has also been extended,” said spokesman Jason Sevestre.
