Majid Al Futtaim, the leading shopping mall, communities, retail and leisure pioneer, holds exclusive rights to operate Carrefour in 38 countries across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Today it has a grand portfolio of more than 257 hypermarkets and supermarkets in 15 countries, and has announced the rebranding of the popular Hyperstar to Carrefour across Pakistan!
Majid Al Futtaim has its presence in Pakistan since 2009 through the Hyperstar brand, which introduced modern retail to the country. All shoppers know of the excitement that comes with shopping at the mega store, which holds everything under one roof! The rebranding to Carrefour will further enhance modern retail in Pakistan and provide customers with the retailers bespoke shopping experience and customer service offering.
Mr. Gyu Taeg Kim, Country Manager of Hyperstar Pakistan at Majid Al Futtaim – Retail, said: “The rebranding to Carrefour is an important milestone for Majid Al Futtaim in Pakistan and comes with major expansion plans in the country. As a main investor in Pakistan, we are proud to be contributing to the economy and we will continue to create more direct and indirect job opportunities with every new store we open.”
As part of the rebranding, Majid Al Futtaim will also launch a loyalty program and a mobile application for Carrefour, for the first time in Pakistan. To reduce the environmental impact, Carrefour will continue to use bio-degradable, reusable bags. The stores will continue to offer a wide selection of food and non-food products at unbeatable prices. Moreover, free Wi-Fi and power banks will be available across the stores for customers- now that’s a high quality shopping experience!
Carrefour also plans to open a new supermarket format in Pakistan, called the Carrefour Market. The store will open in the Mall of Defence in Lahore, early 2019. Additional stores will open in Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Sialkot and other areas later during 2019.
