Featured insights and store visits from Western Europe

Albert Heijn's new concept supermarket launched in March 2020 during a local lockdown. Explore how it adapted for success amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and how ranging, private label and digitalisation will set it apart in the future.

We look at how the discount channel has evolved in Europe since the Great Recession and what operators’ different areas of focus are. Over the last 12 years, discounters invested billions in their stores and private label products whilst maintaining the value proposition and even launching ecommerce. We also highlight some considerations for your business when trading with discounters in a post-COVID-19 world.

We talk to the winners of the IGD Store of the Year award 2019 to understand how the store has advanced, how it is adapting in the face of COVID-19 and plans for the future
