Carrefour to open its 6th store at Galleria Shopping Mall this July

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 21 – Carrefour is set to open its sixth store at Galleria Shopping Mall on Langata Road this July.

Carrefour Kenya Country Manager Franck Moreau says the store will be opened using a special selling model of 1,000 square metres targeting residents of the Karengata area.

The new store is located in an area that did not previously offer its residents any form of modern retail, despite a growing population in that area.

“Our ambition is to scale up our operations from the partial selling model to a fully-fledged hypermarket of more than 5,000 square metres by mid- 2019. We will then offer the full range of over 30,000 food and non-food products to our customers living in Langata, Karen and along Magadi road as well as areas beyond these residential areas, continuing to create great moments for everyone every day,” he said

The Galleria Shopping Mall opened in 2010 on a 12-acre piece of land and has developed into a vibrant shopping, dining and lifestyle destination.

The retailer is also opening its first Carrefour Market, its supermarket format, at the Village Market in December.

Carrefour Kenya which started operations in 2016, will have contributed towards the creation of 2,700 new employment opportunities by 2019 as it currently operates five Carrefour stores in Kenya at The Hub in Karen, Two Rivers Mall, Thika Road Mall, The Junction and Sarit Centre.

Majid Al Futtaim currently operates over 240 Carrefour stores across 15 markets and continues seeking opportunities to open stores in Kenya and the rest of the greater East African region.
