Carrefour, owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim, Monday announced its plans to make a foray into the western Kenya market and will open two stores in the first year in Kisumu city.

Franck Moreau, Country Manager of Carrefour Kenya said the stores — which are located at the Market MEGA and the United Mall — will open in July and August respectively. 

The stores will offer a convenient assortment, focusing on fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) at Carrefour prices.

“Our continuous commitment to contribute towards the Kenyan economy is reflected in the increase of job opportunities for local communities where we operate. As a true testament to uplifting those around us, more than two hundred Kisumu residents will benefit from the opening of the two stores through direct and indirect employment,” said Franck Moreau

The opening of the two stores will raise the total number of Carrefour outlets in Kenya to 15, including 11 stores in Nairobi and 2 in Mombasa.
