In July of this year, Marqt sold two stores in Amsterdam and The Hague to Albert Heijn. The acquisition of the four stores is in line with the retailer’s strategy to expand its presence in city centres.  The stores will cater to the needs of urban consumers and include plenty of fresh products, freshly prepared meals, and numerous digital innovations.

The refurbished stores in Utrechtsestraat in Amsterdam and The Hague are scheduled to open in the middle of December, while the remaining two are scheduled to open next year. All employees of the four Marqt outlets will either be absorbed by Albert Heijn or assigned to other Marqt stores, the retailer said.
