Belgium, 2016-Oct-30 — /EPR Retail News/ — The “Prix Mercure” is the most coveted award in Belgium’s retail sector. It is presented by Comeos, an organisation set up to represent retail and services in Belgium, and is awarded to the best store every year.
Carrefour decided to enter its “Les Grands Prés” hypermarket in Le Mons for the challenge. An independent panel made up of seven retail specialists voted for the “store concept of the year”, selecting one from numerous contenders. All of them placed the emphasis on the customer experience, as well as what it is like for employees to work at them, and represented a major innovation on a market that is mature or otherwise.
The panel revealed the name of the 2016 “Prix Mercure” winning store at a prestigious awards ceremony on 26 October at Le BEL (Tour & Taxis). And it was the Mons store which won the prize!
This store was presented with the award because:
> The service with a human face that it provides successfully incorporates digital technologies
> It places the emphasis on business expertise (a pizza maker, a chocolatier, a sommelier, and beer that is brewed on site)
Congratulations to all of the teams who played a part in this excellent result!
