The new Carrefour store, which started operating as a pilot store in August and has been fully operational since the beginning of September, is located in the center of Piraeus and is the company’s first company store, while it belongs to the Carrefour Market, City concept type, i.e. the stores of the company that operate in urban areas and central roads, offering consumers a wide range of products and services, properly adapted to the needs and particularities of each area.
“In less than five months, we are already in 8 different regions throughout Greece, with 13 stores, of two different types. In addition, the connection of consumers with the Carrefour brand was fully reflected in the dynamics that our stores have already developed in the local markets. Our business plan continues inexorably, aiming to have completed our first phase of development by the end of the year. The opening of the Piraeus store is the second important step for us, after the creation of the first store, since it is our first corporate store in Attica”, notes Vassilis Stasinoulias, CEO of Carrefour in Greece.
The company’s goal is to create an expanded network of stores throughout Greece, which will include stores of different types, properly adapted to the conditions of each local market, while for the next period the operation of 8 new stores has already been launched.
