The Belgian-Dutch distribution group Ahold Dehaize announced on Monday that it aimed to accelerate growth by opening about 350 stores and supermarkets in three to four years.
In addition to opening 200 new Fresh Atelier and Shop&Go stores, which it announced in late October, the group plans to add 100 new supermarkets (SM, AD or Proxy) and 30 to 50 Albert Heijn supermarkets in Flanders.

The Dutch supermarket chain Albert Heijn, whose mother company is Ahold, is still a chain in its own right in Belgium, De Standaard reported. This information was confirmed by the company, which has 42 stores in Belgium today.

"Delhaize will pursue its growth path in 2019 with a solid commercial plan,” the group stated. “With this growth plan Delhaize will strengthen its position on the Belgian market through accelerated growth, both online and offline. That will be done in combination with Albert Heijn’s growth plans.
