Ahold Delhaize

East Coast

In 1989, Stop & Shop engaged VHB in the development of a new grocery store in Massachusetts. Thirty years later, Ahold Delhaize continues to rely on VHB to advance their development goals on the East Coast. Our retail team connects to all facets of their organization—real estate, construction, and store planning. With an in-depth knowledge of their program and operational needs, we’ve been able to partner with Ahold’s brands—Stop & Shop, Hannaford, Giant, and Food Lion—on site location and real estate disposition strategies, store expansion plans, redevelopment of existing stores into mixed-use centers, and more recently the e-commerce pick-up program. Through this partnership VHB has become a trusted advisor and an integral part of their team.
