Carrefour has signed a new deal with Cepsa which will see its Express stores appear in more petrol stations across Spain.
At present, 175 Carrefour Express stores exist in Cepsa service stations, and 85 will have opened during 2016. The new contract runs until 2018.
“The Carrefour Express outlets installed at Cepsa service stations extend the usual range on offer at service station outlets, offering guests the variety of a supermarket at competitive prices, while also offering the Carrefour brand,” the supermarket chain said in a press release.
“The aim of the outlets is to offer the user an alternative way to buy supermarket products without leaving the service station, giving the customer a closer, easier and more comfortable shopping experience, without having to travel to other premises.”
It added, “To this is added the current discounted prices offered on fuel by the two companies. This enables customers to make a 4% saving when refuelling at Cepsa with the Carrefour club card, which becomes 5% during the summer months.”
