Carrefour to Open Three Stores In Mombasa
Carrefour is expanding its retail footprint across the country with the upcoming opening of three new Carrefour stores in the nation’s second largest city, Mombasa.
The store openings will mark Carrefour’s commitment to investing in the Kenyan economy while expanding consumer choice.
The first two stores in Mombasa will officially open their doors in November this year at City Mall Nyali and Diani Centre Point Plaza.
The Nyali store will house a home-made bakery section alongside a wide assortment of non-food and electronic products, and will feature a two-floored Carrefour Diani that has been designed using best practice retail space concepts.
Franck Moreau, Country Manager of Carrefour Kenya said that the opening of the three stores underscores Carrefour’s ambitious growth and expansion plans in Kenya.
“It honours our commitment to offering great customer experiences locally; doing so by bringing a wide assortment of products — at the best value within a modern, state of the art environment — to more Kenyans and communities across the country.” Said Moreau.
In keeping with the brand’s values, Carrefour will work with Kenyan suppliers and farmers from the coastal region to supply fresh produce directly to the stores.
This is in line with the brand’s commitment to the Buy Kenya, Build Kenya national campaign which exclusively promotes Made in Kenya products, to support the local industry.
Moreover, the three stores will create both direct and indirect employment opportunities for over 600 Kenyans across the coastal region as Carrefour keeps its promise of investing in local talent.
The opening of the three Carrefour stores will raise the total number of the brand’s outlets in Kenya to 11, including eight operational stores in Nairobi.
