Carrefour Announces New Carrefour City Store In Paris With Organic Focus
Carrefour France has announced that it has opened a new Carrefour City store in Paris, dedicated to well-being and everything that's ‘good and beautiful’.
The store, which opened on 21 June, is located at Beaupassage, in the 7th arrondissement, and features almost 6,000 SKUs and employs more than 20 staff.
The new store offers a wide selection of organic, gluten-free and vegan products, in line with the group's aim of becoming one of the largest companies engaged in making organic products widely available by 2022.
The store has a surface area of 600 square metres, a third of which is dedicated to approximately 1,500 SKUs of organic, gluten-free and vegan products.
Home delivery and a click-and-collect service are available in the store, as well as a 'Monkey Locky' service, which gives customers access to connected lockers so they may securely pass keys to one another when renting apartments, etc.
This new Carrefour City store has been built with the shopping experience in mind, and redesigned to function as a meeting place. It is built around a communal bar area and a terrace where people can dine, have coffee and even exchange books via a shared library.
The French retailer opened its first high-tech store in Shanghai last month, and Carrefour said it sees China as the ideal location to develop new methods for attracting shoppers.
