The first Jumbo City opened in Eindhoven’s central station on Wednesday morning. The new store is a hybrid of regular Jumbo supermarkets and the La Place restaurants the chain bought from bankrupt retailer V&D.
Albert Heijn’s AH To Go stores have been considered ‘the’ railway station supermarket for years. By opening Jumbo City, Albert Heijn’s Vehgel-based competitor appears to be breaking that monopoly.
Eindhoven Station now has a supermarket on each side, with the AH To Go located on the bus station side.
Jumbo City also offers fresh food in its La Place area, where rolls and sushi are prepared daily. Prices are also lower.
