‘Carrefour Now’ To Combat Amazon Prime Now
In an effort to compete with Amazon Prime Now, three Carrefour Market outlets are to trial a one-hour delivery system, Linéaires.com reports.
The new service has been called Carrefour Now. Postal delivery company La Poste will deliver goods ordered online by bicycle from the Market stores in rue de Seine, rue de Rochechouart et rue des Pyrénées, which are located in, respectively, the sixth, ninth and twentieth arrondissements of the French capital.
Amazon Prime Now was officially launched on 16 June in France. It offers subscribers access to 18,000 SKUs, and guarantees delivery within an hour.
