GENOA, ITALY, 2015-10-3 — /EPR Retail News/ — On 24 September Carrefour Italia held a special event to inaugurate the new formula of the Market store of Via XX Settembre in Genova, which will offer the Genoese public the products and services of excellence which characterise the Gourmet Markets. Another major novelty is the possibility of doing one’s shopping day and night, throughout the week, thus meeting the new flexibility requirements of the Genoese, who will be able to organise the time of their purchases far more simply.

The store also offers a well-stocked bread counter where the typical Ligurian focaccias can be found, made in the traditional way. Many of the gourmet products on sale can already be enjoyed in the modern and elegant bistrot that welcomes customers on entering the Market.
