Timisoara, ROMANIA, 2015-12-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — On 25 November, Carrefour Romania opened its first Carrefour hypermarket in the city of Timisoara, where it features as part of Timisoara’s most recently-built shopping centre. This new opening takes the total number of Carrefour hypermarket’s in Romania up to 29.
The Timisoara Carrefour hypermarket has a sales area of 7800 m² and includes all the standard butchery, delicatessen, grilled meats/pizza, bakery and confectionery counters. Customers can choose from a wide range of more than 50,000 items.
Well served by the city’s public transport system, there is also a free car park with spaces for 1800 cars.
Opening the store has created some 300 new jobs.
Carrefour Timisoara is also particularly focused on minimising its impact on the environment: its equipment is designed to keep electricity consumption and carbon emissions to a minimum. Its LED lighting system, for example, reduces electricity consumption by 35%, its refrigeration system reduces carbon dioxide emissions by more than 900 tonnes per year, while diverting heat generated by the store’s refrigeration systems to the store’s ancillary storage areas eliminates all requirements for other energy sources.
