THE NETHERLANDS - Albert Heijn, the largest supermarket chain in The Netherlands, has announced strong first-quarter sales worth EUR 2.7 billion, an increase of nearly 14 percent.
Defying expectations, the chain saw its market share grow while Ahold, of which is part, saw its overall sales drop as a result of the weakening dollar in the United States. Ahold will release its first-quarter results in June.
