Carrefour continues its growth plan in Greece, with the opening of the first Carrefour Market in Attica, which is the 13th store to be inaugurated since last May, when the French company marked its return to the Greek market with the opening of its first store in Chalkidiki.
The new Carrefour store, which started operating on a pilot basis in August and has been fully operational since the beginning of September, is located in the centre of Piraeus and is the company’s first corporate store, while it belongs to the Carrefour Market, City concept type, i.e. the company’s stores that operate in urban areas and main roads, offering consumers a wide range of products and services, suitably adapted to the needs and specificities of each area.
Mr. Vasilis Stasinoulias, CEO of Carrefour Greece, stated: ‘’In less than five months, we are already in 8 different areas around Greece, with 13 stores of two different types. Moreover, the consumers’ connection with the Carrefour brand has been fully reflected in the momentum that our stores have already developed in local markets. Our business plan continues unabated, wanting to have completed our first phase of growth by the end of the year. The opening of the Piraeus store is the second important step for us, after the opening of the first store, as it is our first corporate store in Attica”.
