Carrefour has opened its 4,000th convenience store in France – a ‘bespoke’ Carrefour Express unit, covering 180 square metres, in the heart of Montpellier.
It offers the city’s dwellers a selection of nearly 3,500 SKUs, among which is an 'extensive' range of fresh produce, fruit, vegetables and snacks. An in-store bakery is also available.
The retailer noted that the manager of the unit, M’hamed Mellouki (40), has achieved a Master’s degree in economics. ‘With the help of 5 employees, he has now opened up this second retail outlet, driven by the desire to provide the people of Montpellier with a truly local service.’
