Carrefour Spain Rolls Out New Store With Grupo Abades

French large-scale retailer Carrefour has opened a new Carrefour Express convenience store at the Abades Puerta de Andalucía in the town of Santa Elena in the Jaén province in Spain.

This is the first supermarket that Carrefour Spain has opened in collaboration with the Spanish hotel and catering company, the retailer noted.

In July, the collaboration will see the rollout of another supermarket at the BP gas station in Santa Elena, also operated by Abades.

Located next to the restaurant area of this rest area, the new store has a sales area of 278 square metres and an assortment of over 2,000 SKUs, including packaged food products, fresh food and beverages. It also features drugstore, perfumery, and market areas.

The rollout of Carrefour Express stores will further complement the retail offer of service stations managed by Grupo Abades.
