Omnichannel approach to fulfill shopper missions

Van den Berg said, 'I find it a great challenge to continue building a beautiful and strong brand together with our employees as Trekpleister. With 190 stores, Trekpleister has grown into a real neighbourhood drug store, where customers are always at the centre and skilled employees make the difference [...].'

'To serve customers in the right way, at the right time and through the right channels, we are committed to an omnichannel approach, whereby our online channels and physical stores reinforce each other. Now that Trekpleister is also under my responsibility, I can make a valuable contribution to the growth of both the physical Trekpleister stores and the webshops.'
