According to PLMA, Carrefour is starting the integration of the 172 stores that it acquired from Supersol in Spain. The stores are mainly located in Andalusia and Madrid and they will be converted to Carrefour’s Express, Market and Supeco banners this year.
Across the Atlantic, Carrefour has bought Grupo Big Brasil, the third largest food retailer in Brazil. The agreement comprises 387 stores and the retailer is valued at approximately 1.1 billion euros. The deal strengthens Carrefour’s leadership in Brazil. The retailer plans to convert Grupo Big’s stores to its Atacadão, Sam’s Club and Carrefour hypermarket banners.
The two groups have combined sales of around 153 million euros, operate 876 stores and employ around 137,000 people.
