Boulogne-Billancourt, France, 2015-7-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour is focusing on getting ready for September with innovative services (like its new Click List platform), useful tips and an extended selection of items at affordable prices. The retailer is stepping up its efforts to make the start of the autumn term simpler and less expensive.
NEW SERVICES TO HELP YOU PLAN AHEAD AND MAKE SHOPPING FOR THE START OF TERM EASIER
For September 2015, Carrefour is launching:
> Starting in July, “My Click List”:
A collaborative site that people can use to share lists of school supplies that their children’s primary and secondary schools have sent. This saves time for other parents who can access them freely. For each list shared, Carrefour is offering a 10% discount at one of its drive stores until 30 September. Customers can then purchase their school supplies online from among 400 essential items. The order is handled by one of the 87 participating drive stores and then all customers have to do is come and pick up their shopping!
> All through the year, the “Satchel Guarantee”
Carrefour is guaranteeing all of the school satchels that are in its catalogue from 1 July to 1 August 2015 for the whole year.
Guaranteeing peace of mind all year long!
> And for customers who have a PASS card:
They get free school insurance whenever they spend €50 or more on non-food products. Carrefour is also offering 60% off subscriptions to the Maxicours online tuition service, as well as a number of easy payment options.
THE “LOWEST PRICE GUARANTEE” EXTENDED TO INCLUDE 200 NATIONAL-BRAND PRODUCTS
For the fourth year in a row, the lowest price guarantee has been extended to include 200 national-brand products. And Carrefour is also going to be selling 2500 national-brand, licensed and own-brand products – everything from school satchels and school organisers to pens. For example, Carrefour has created 3 new own-brand collections: the “Modern Princesses” and the “Rebels”, as well as a special range for older children.
DISCOUNTS FOR LARGE FAMILIES
And to help larger families throughout the school year1, Carrefour is offering 10% off in the stationary department for every €20 purchase of back-to-school items at its hypermarkets between 29 June and 13 September 2015.
