Grand Hall News

May 16, 2023

More of a district match doesn't get any better than this: Germany's best supermarket honored in the Grand Hall.

Food retailers from all over Germany had applied, and the result was a real home game for the region: An EDEKA center in Duisburg was now honored as one of the four best national supermarkets in the Grand Hall ZOLLVEREIN, Essen. A total of 12 stores were on the shortlist, nominated by customers for their innovative concepts and unusual offers.

A long tradition: The trade magazine Lebensmittel Praxis (LPV) has been presenting the award for three decades. The last three years of these always in the Grand Hall. "We feel very comfortable here," explains Marc Linnig. The project manager of LPV, based in Neuwied, is responsible for organizing trade fairs and events. He does not spare praise for the Grand Hall location, its team and suppliers. "For us, it's like coming home. The girls and guys who have this in hand are just great."

High voltage at the end of the day

Around 450 guests joined in the excitement in the Grand Hall, while the expert jury of trade representatives retreated to the adjacent historic Schalthaus. When the winners (in addition to Duisburg, one Rewe store each in Munich and Berlin and another Edeka store in Brannenburg) were announced in the evening at the climax of an entire day of events, there was no holding back. In an exuberant mood, people congratulated, celebrated, hugged and ate - culinary highlights prepared by star chef Sascha Stemberg, among others.
