A few days ago I learned that this building will be torn down soon.

Delhaize, the Belgian supermarket chain that currently resides in this building will tear it down to construct a new one. Though the old name of the store was not taken down when Delhaize moved in, this supermarket chain did not have the monopoly anymore as other supermarkets are also present.

The name of the former store "Monopol" (Monopoly) was telling: no competitors. This reminds me a bit of the “good ol’ GDR times” just in the capitalist west. 😉

Not the monopoly anymore
