4000th Carrefour Express store opens in the centre of Montpellier

Boulogne-Billancourt, 2017-Jan-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour is continuing with its drive to increase its numbers of convenience stores in mainland France with the opening of its 4000th store on Tuesday, 20 December 2016: A Carrefour Express store, right in the centre of Montpellier.

A bespoke store
The 180 m² retail outlet has been located in a fast-growing part of the city and has nearly 3500 products on sale. To meet residents’ needs as effectively as possible, in addition to a selection of everyday products, it stocks an extensive range of fresh produce, fruit and vegetables and snacks – as well as a bakery area for bread.
Customers will be able to take advantage of all the usual Carrefour benefits: everything from the loyalty programme to a wide range of products at affordable prices.

A friendly team on-hand to help customers
The shop’s manager, M’hamed Mellouki (40) has a Master’s degree in Economics and initially wanted to go into teaching. Instead, in 2014, his interest in retail led him to open his first Carrefour Express store.
With the help of 5 employees, he has now opened up this second retail outlet, driven by the desire to provide the people of Montpellier with a truly local service.

Carrefour Convenience, formats especially for city-dwelling customers
Carrefour’s convenience stores are designed to make the lives of people living in cities easier – particularly with their long opening times.  In a more compact format, they stock a complete selection of products for day-to-day shopping trips: groceries, fresh produce, organic products, home maintenance, ready-to-eat products, etc. As well as a wide range of products, customers get all the usual benefits that their loyalty cards (accepted in all Carrefour stores) provide.
