Leading retailer across the Middle East, Africa and Asia, Majid Al Futtaim, has officially opened its third Carrefour store in Kenya, signalling commitment to the growth and expansion of its footprint in Kenya.

The new store at the popular Thika Road Mall “TRM” will operate with partial area and product range as major refurbishment work gets underway in the 5,000 square metre selling area.

The store currently stocks the most common consumer goods on the upper level of the hypermarket, ahead of opening the lower section by mid-2018.

“We are pleased and honoured to be bringing our services closer to the residents of Roysambu and Kasarani, as well as the growing number of those travelling along the busy Thika Road. Although we are temporarily offering a partial product range, we continue to stand by our commitment to deliver high quality products at the most competitive prices, in the best possible environment.” Majid Al Futtaim – Retail Kenya Country Manager Franck Moreau said.

When fully operational later next year, The Mall store will stock over 30,000.

The Thika Road Mall store becomes the third Carrefour store in Kenya, with the first two- at The Hub in Karen and at Two Rivers Mall, opened in May 2016 and March 2017, respectively. It brings total staff at Carrefour in Kenya to 800, with 200 already assigned to the Thika Road Mall store.
