[Nairobi, Kenya]: Majid Al Futtaim, the leading shopping mall, communities, retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa and Asia, today announced the opening of its second Carrefour hypermarket in Nairobi, Kenya. The retailer’s expansion within the Kenyan market marks a significant milestone in the Company’s expansion plans into the African continent.
The most recent hypermarket is located in East Africa's pre-eminent destination anchored by the newest retail hotspot in Nairobi, the Two Rivers Mall, and offers more than 30,000 items, including fresh produce and groceries, a fresh bakery, home appliances, electronics and general merchandise.
Renowned for great value products and a combination of discount offers, Carrefour promises its customers more than just shopping. As evidenced by the first store, the hypermarket’s customers will continue to enjoy an excellent shopping experience and purchase quality products at even lower costs at the new 7,200 square meters store.
Franck Moreau, Country Manager, at Majid Al Futtaim – Retail Kenya said, “At the new Carrefour store, we will remain committed to offering the best price and best merchandise in a pleasant shopping environment as we have at our Carrefour Store at the Hub Mall, because we are in the business of creating great moments for everyone every day. Carrefour is here to be Kenya’s daily shopping partner and strives to make a world class difference to the retail experience and to enrich the lives of all consumers in Kenya.”
“We are pleased to see the benefits of Carrefour’s presence in Kenya through continuous job creation and support for local producers. We have so far recruited just over 210 staff members at the Two Rivers hypermarket and by the end of 2017 Carrefour Kenya will have a solid staff base totalling 400 individuals at both stores,” he continued.
Majid Al Futtaim prides itself in upholding the highest international standards and best practices from supply chain management to customer service. The hypermarket is already working with more than 450 suppliers, 445 local manufacturers, producers, and farmers across Kenya for the new store.
“Majid Al Futtaim began its operations in Kenya out of the desire to introduce household retail with the highest international standards and best practices. We are proud to open our second store in Kenya in less than two years, and we will continue to offer highest customer service standards, a more sophisticated shopping experience, and best practice in in-store hygiene processes,” he concluded.
