As many as 200 grocery items will be discounted between 15 and 45 per cent in the run-up to Ramadan (from 5 May until 8 June), delivering a total saving in excess of 15 million AED.

During the month of Ramadan, Carrefour customers will be able to enjoy access to daily ‘crazy deals’ offering significant savings on commodities, especially family items and basket offers worth AED 100 (13 items) and 200 (26 items). Furthermore, customers will be able to continue enjoying MyCLUB reward schemes.

In the spirit of giving during the month of Ramadan, Carrefour will also reintroduce its Zakat al Fitr initiative where selected products will be available to purchase for donation to charity.

In addition to Ramadan promotions, more than 160 products are set to have their prices “locked” until the end of 2016, as part of Carrefour’s commitment to deliver low costs every day for its customers. The list of items included in the “locked prices” scheme is available at the entrance in all Carrefour hypermarkets in the UAE, with individual products highlighted on the shelves with a “locked price” tag.
