Hans Anders opens 5th store in Antwerp

On Friday 24 September, Hans Anders opens its 5th store in Antwerp. The new store is located at Carnotstraat 129 in the Borgerhout district. Residents from the wider Antwerp region are served with glasses and sunglasses at the well-known competitive pricing.


Hans Anders is conquering Belgium rapidly. The optician chain opens new stores in Flanders and Wallonia every year. Hans Anders still sees opportunities in Belgium, according to Barry Oosting, Country Retail Manager in Belgium. “Hans Anders operates the market segment of value and price. Our service and glasses are high-quality as well as extremely affordable. This segment is popular and always growing, even going against dominant retail trends. Plus, more and more people wear glasses and Belgium is no exception. We operate four successful stores in Antwerp, but were still absent in the Borgerhout district. Overall, Borgerhout has few opticians while the district in general is up and coming. A great opportunity for us to make a difference with a beautiful store. We found an appealing location at Carnotstraat, easy to reach by bicycle and public transport".

An enthusiastic team was composed to run the store, consisting of professional and properly trained opticians. They are able to offer professional eye measurement and thorough vision and styling advice to all the visitors.  Hans Anders will offer a complete assortment of top brands and their own brands at the spacious store spanning no less than 143 m2.

The store will be officially opened on Friday 24 September with a festive promotion: 50% off on all complete glasses. The promotion ends on 9 October. The store is open from Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
