Carrefour Express “Urban Life” opens in Milan

Carrefour Express “Urban Life” opens in Milan

 

Milan, 2017-Feb-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — The first revolutionary concept, Carrefour Express “Urban Life”, is now operating in Milan, which is not just a local supermarket, but also includes a “dining area for a tasty breakfast, a rich or light lunch break, to eat right there or to take home or to the office, a lounge bar to enjoy an appetizer together with one of the more than 200 Italian and international beers, a coworking space where you can work in comfort or just spend some time relaxing in peace.

The new concept store, located in Milan, at Corso Garibaldi 49, in the heart of Milan’s nightlife, offers more than 120 m2 of space on two floors. An innovative proposal that meets the changing needs of customers in bustling cities like Milan, where there is an increasingly strong need to combine pleasure, work and socializing.

Carrefour Express has actually redesigned and transformed the supermarket shelves into new areas, such as the cafe area, with a wide selection of desserts for a snack or for breakfast, or the gourmet deli department, with the option to order pizza, the Tokyo Street area, where the sushi is prepared fresh every day, or the artisanal ice cream counter. There are not only ready-made meals for quick take-away service, but also a rich gourmet offering, with constantly changing recipes that are suitable for all tastes, whether traditional or international, that you can enjoy in the dedicated dining area.

For those who don’t mind waiting in line for a little while, do not miss the salad bar and the juice corner, where the best seasonal products are prepared fresh every day, including fruit salads, yogurt, vegetable salads, soups, juices and smoothies. Customers can also create their own salads and plates to suit their needs and tastes.

But the absolute innovation is definitely the lounge bar with sofas, where Happy Hour is served every evening from 6 to 9 pm in the real Milanese tradition.
Keeping the region in mind, which is a characteristic that has always distinguished Carrefour Express, is also highlighted with the more than 100 products produced in Italy, which are made available to customers so they can taste the best of the Italian gourmet world.
