Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, 27th July 2011: Today, Carrefour opens its second hypermarket in Ras Al Khaimah, as the retailer expands its reach across the Emirates. Located in Al Safeer Mall on Airport Road, the new hypermarket covers an area of 9,200m2, representing more than 31 per cent of the mall’s leasable space, and offers customers a range of more than 25000 products across fresh food and groceries, consumer electronics, household goods, clothing and accessories, personal and beauty care, and other sectors.
Henry Changeux, GCC Country Head of Carrefour said: “We opened our first hypermarket in Ras Al Khaimah in Manar Mall in September 2000, and since then, we have been looking to bring Carrefour choice and value to many more people across the Emirate. With the opening of the hypermarket in Al Safeer Mall, we can do just that.”
