- The brand has opened a flagship at Mega Mall in Nairobi off Uhuru Highway
- 250 Kenyan employees and over 200 part-time workers have been recruited
Carrefour, which is operated by Majid Al Futtaim in Kenya, has expanded its footprint by opening an eighth store in Nairobi.
The two-floored Mega Shopping Mall along Uhuru Highway occupies 170,000 SQFT property previously anchored by Nakumatt, which had occupied 40,000 SQFT designed using best practice retail space concepts and modern technology for ease of shopping and display.
Franck Moreau, Country Manager of Carrefour Kenya at Majid Al Futtaim Retail said: “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. 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.”
The store will stock over 39,000 food and non-food items. These offerings will supplement the conventional fresh produce, groceries, fresh bakery, and roastery sections that Carrefour customers are accustomed to.
The new store has a sales area of more than 7,000 square metres, a 1.8-metre aisle width and 36 checkout counters, among other features that will enhance the customer experience.
The Carrefour store will be convenient to the residents of Upper Hill, Madaraka, South B, South C and those who live along Mombasa road, in particular.
Committed to making a positive impact on people and communities in which it operates, Majid Al Futtaim has recruited 250 Kenyan employees and over 200 part-time workers at the new Carrefour store to foster local employment across Kenya.
