Carrefour To Open First Hypermarket In Andorra
Carrefour has announced plans to open its first hypermarket in Andorra, following the signing of a franchise agreement between Carrefour Partenariat International and Groupe Pyrénées, the principality's leading commercial enterprise.
The planned 6,000 square metre store will open in September, and feature a Bon Appétit on-site catering offer as well as a myriad of other services.
Over the next two years, Groupe Pyrénées will work alongside Carrefour on the development of several stores in Andorra, the retailer said.
"We are very pleased to introduce our flagship Carrefour brand in Andorra thanks to our new partnership with Groupe Pyrénées," commented Patrick Lasfargues, executive director of Carrefour Partenariat International.
"We will therefore provide all our customers with a unique offer of the best Carrefour products from Spain and France."
Elsewhere, Patrick Perez, president and chief executive of Groupe Pyrénées said that the planned opening is a "great opportunity" for the business to strengthen its position as a leader in the marketplace.
"The quality image of Groupe Pyrénée will be reinforced by the arrival of one of the European leaders in the sector," he said.
