Ahold has simplified its online shopping operation in the Netherlands by moving all of its b2c e-commerce activities into a single site. From November 5, customers can log onto www.albert.nl and place orders from any of Ahold's Dutch subsidiary companies, such as Albert Heijn supermarkets, Gall & Gall wine and liquor stores, Etos health and beauty stores, De Tuinen natural product stores and Deli XL foodservice. Ahold has developed expertise in the online shopping arena through its experience in the US, Scandinavia and Latin America, and has drawn upon this in developing the service in its home market, said a spokesman. {{NEWS }}
