“It is a beautiful, striking building that is also in a great location on the Neude,” says supermarket manager Melissa Schuurman. In the new store, which also has a café section, around 150 employees will be working. The majority comes from other Albert Heijn stores in the area, the other employees are new.
The Jumbo has opened its doors in the building where V&D and Hudson’s Bay used to be. The building is attached to Hoog Catharijne. The entrance to the supermarket is therefore in the mall. Part of the store has been reserved for La Place where you can also eat and drink.
“I am proud that we can now also respond to the wishes of inner-city customers at this location in Utrecht,” said Colette Cloosterman-van Eerd, co-owner of Jumbo.
