Carrefour, which is operated by Majid Al Futtaim in Kenya, will tomorrow officially open its eighth store in Nairobi, Kenya. Located at the Mega Shopping Mall along Uhuru Highway, the new hypermarket destination promises an unrivalled shopping experience and a wide range of quality and value-for-money products under one roof.
The new two-floored Carrefour has been designed using best practice retail space concepts and modern technology for ease of shopping and display. The store will stock over 39,000 food and non-food items, and include a range of unique specialty offerings such as jewellery, home décor, a library, bistro area and a fresh milk dispensing machine. These offerings will supplement the conventional fresh produce, groceries, fresh bakery and roastery sections that Carrefour customers are accustomed to.
“The opening of our new Carrefour store in Nairobi underscores our commitment to offering great customer experiences through high-quality retail outlets where customers can access quality products at the best prices,” said Franck Moreau, country manager, Carrefour Kenya. “The new store will also enable Carrefour customers to enjoy home delivery services in the region, making it convenient to shop online during the ongoing circumstances,” he added.
The new store has a sales area of more than 7,000 square metres, a 1.8-metre aisle width and thirty six checkout counters, among other features that will enhance the customer experience. Easily accessible, this Carrefour store is convenient to the residents of Upper Hill, Madaraka, South B, South C and those who live along Mombasa road.
making a positive impact on people and communities in which it operates,
Majid Al Futtaim has recruited two hundred and fifty Kenyan employees and over two hundred part time workers at the new Carrefour store to foster local employment across Kenya. Additionally, more than 99 per cent of the stock in Carrefour stores will be sourced locally, ensuring that the revenues contribute to the local community’s supply chain.
