Carrefour hypermarket in Le Mons voted wins 2016 “Prix Mercure” award

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!

First Carrefour hypermarket opened in the Ivory Coast in Abidjan

Abidjan, Ivory Coast, 2015-12-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Within the framework of the partnership between CFAO and Carrefour that was formalised in May 2013, the first Carrefour hypermarket has just opened in the Ivory Coast, in Abidjan.

It’s located in “PlaYce Marcory”, a brand-new 20,000 m² shopping centre. Designed and operated by CFAO, it features 3 separate areas: the Carrefour hypermarket with its 3200 m² sales area, a 55-store shopping centre and a food court with a seating area that can accommodate up to 400 people.

The hypermarket employs 510 people, practicing more than 100 different jobs. Carrefour’s teams were involved in the selection processes and will continue to manage the employees so that the relevant skills can be properly transferred. 16,000 hours of training delivered since April 2015.

The store has a very wide range (more than 30,000 items) and features national brands, Carrefour own-brand products and local products. The store also has a number of traditional sections – a butcher’s, a fish counter and a bakery/pastry section.

As far as equipment is concerned, the store minimises its environmental footprint by using LED lighting exclusively and closed ultra-fresh refrigeration units.

The Carrefour/CFAO partnership
This partnership began in May 2013 and involves a joint-venture company 55% of which is controlled by CFAO and the remaining 45% by Carrefour. The company operates supermarkets and hypermarkets in PlaYce shopping centres in eight countries throughout the region (Cameroon, Republic of the Congo, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Ghana, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Senegal).

By entering into this agreement, CFAO – Africa’s leading retail group, and Carrefour – the world’s second-largest retail group, are providing consumers with all of Carrefour’s strength and the expertise of its central purchasing units, together with CFAO’s intimate knowledge of distribution channels in Africa.

This opening marks the first step in a major development plan involving CFAO, Carrefour and other partner brands that will be deployed over the next few years in eight African countries.
Carrefour stores located in PlaYce centres can be of a number of different formats: neighbourhood retailers, supermarkets or hypermarkets.
