Retail giant Carrefour is set to unveil its new two-floored store at Mega Mall along Uhuru Highway – previously occupied by the now-defunct Nakumatt.
The new store will stock over 39,000 locally sourced items and will feature online shopping options, making it uniquely convenient to customers living in Upper Hill, Madaraka, South B, South C and Mombasa road.
Already, the retailer has hired 250 full-time employees for the new store and another 200 part-timers. The new store will be its eighth one within the Kenyan market.
Launched in 1955 by the Majid Al Futtaim Group, Carrefour is among the largest hypermarkets chains in the world with over 300 stores in over 30 countries across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
Since 2016 when it opened its first store in Kenya at The Hub Karen, Carrefour has been on an extremely upward trajectory thanks to its competitive pricing, unique customer-centric services and very liquid godfathers – underpinning its expansion plans.
