Cheapest Brussels supermarket is Colruyt in Woluwe-Saint-Pierre
This year’s consumer report on supermarkets carried out by Test-Achats again shows that Colruyt is the overall cheapest supermarket in Belgium. The report gets more detailed still: The Colruyt at Rue René Declercq 20 in Woluwe-Saint-Pierre is the cheapest supermarket in Brussels.
The report, however, might not be as exhaustive as it seems: Price-cutters like Aldi and Lidl were found to be cheaper when it comes to own-brands, but were not included in the comparison for international brands because they don’t carry enough of them to make the report.
Also, the Colruyt on Chaussée de Gand in Molenbeek, which was the cheapest Brussels supermarket for the last two years, was not included in this year’s comparison. To come up with the report, Test-Achats compares nearly 50,000 products in 237 supermarket outlets across the country.
At Colruyt, shoppers pay 3% less overall than they do at Albert Heijn, and 4% less than they do at Okay. Smatch and Match are the country’s most expensive supermarkets: Consumers pay 20% and 18% more, respectively, than they do at Colruyt for the same products.
In Brussels, the most expensive supermarkets are the Match in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert (part of the Woluwe Shopping Centre), the Smatch in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert and the Carrefour Market on Rue des Tongres in Etterbeek.
