Lhe six stores that Makro has in Belgium will open for the last time on Friday December 30 and will therefore close their doors definitively on Saturday December 31, the site specializing in Gondola distribution reported on Monday. The company will then be put into liquidation or bankruptcy.

A management representative announced the final closing date on Monday during a special works council. “The main question that remains is whether there will be a liquidation or a bankruptcy, but for the staff it makes no difference, the management has informed us of this”, explains Johan Van Loon of the ACV Puls union.

The Makro Cash & Carry Belgium group had obtained protection against its creditors by the Antwerp company court in September until mid-January. This decision was followed by a procedure for the sale of all or part of the chain of stores. The group included 11 stores of the catering wholesaler Metro, nine of which were taken over by the Dutch group Sligro, and six stores of the supermarket chain Makro. Only one offer was made for Makro stores but it was rejected.
