Boulogne-Billancourt, FRANCE, 2016-Aug-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — As children prepare for the new 2016 school year, Carrefour is unveiling a wide range of bargains to help its customers better manage their spending. The retailer is getting them to bring their old exercise books into stores so that the Restos du Coeur can get new ones.
A wide selection for a clever and money-saving start to the new term
The “Satchel Guarantee” lasts the whole year: Carrefour guarantees all the satchels it sells its stores for a whole year.
With its own brand, Carrefour is breaking new ground and has created around a hundred exclusive new products for its Fantaisie range, developed by Carrefour’s Design teams.
The retailer also has the widest selection of national-brand, Carrefour brand and licensed leather goods and diaries, with more than 3000 Disney Marvel, Chipie, Star Wars and Snow Queen products.
Once again this year, Carrefour is applying its lowest price guarantee to 200 national-brand products so the whole family has the supplies it needs – from nursery right through to secondary school.
A fund-raising scheme for Restos du Cœur
From 9 August right through to 5 September, Carrefour hypermarkets will be holding the second “Great Recycling” campaign. Customers will be asked to bring their old exercise books, sheets of paper and catalogues into stores. Paprec – the paper recycling specialist – will then recycle all this waste so that the Restos du Coeur can redistribute school supplies to families experiencing difficulties. The aim is to collect 100 tonnes of paper – that’s the equivalent of 16,000 exercise books or 6000 reams of recycled paper – to give to the Restos du Coeur.
Something positive for the planet
Carrefour is helping its customers adopt a more responsible form of consumption with the help of its fund-raising campaigns and a selection of sustainable products that are made in France, recycled or which carry eco-labels. All cardboard-covered exercise books and Carrefour brand paper reams are made in France using paper derived from sustainably managed forests. Easy to recognize, these products carry the PEFC or NF Environment label.
