- Carrefour opens new convenience store at Bruxelles Congrès railway station; will open 7 more in 2017
Boulogne-Billancourt, France, 2017-Nov-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour will open at least 7 more convenience stores in 2017, including one today (11/09/2017) at Bruxelles Congrès railway station. In so doing, Carrefour is increasing the density of its Express store network across the whole country.
On Wednesday 8 November, Carrefour opened a new convenience store right in the centre of Brussels at 47/49 rue Royale. It is very close to the Congress Column in an area that is considered an administrative, tourist, residential and cultural district (the Cirque Royal and Théâtre du Parc are close by), as well as one through which people pass.
Like all Carrefour Express stores, this new one will ideally tailor its offering to meet consumers’ needs. It will stock a wide variety of meal solutions that can be enjoyed at any time throughout the day (ready-made dishes, snacks, meat, poultry, fish, fresh fruit and vegetables). Customers will also find a broad range of staple products, together with all the “essential” grocery and pharmacy products that they need on a day-to-day basis. And these are available in Carrefour’s own brand and national brands.
At least 22 store openings in 2017
With this latest opening and the ones scheduled for between now and the end of December, Carrefour is reasserting its desire to support its customers as effectively as possible with services and opening times tailored to meet their needs. At least six more Carrefour Express stores are slated to open this year. This will bring the number of new convenience stores in 2017 up to 22. This figure may even rise to 24. Indeed, if circumstances allow it, another two Express stores could be opened by 31 December (provided the necessary licences are obtained, the franchisees make progress with their applications, etc.).
