Over 200 jobs up for grabs as Carrefour opens new branch at Westgate Mall
Carrefour Supermarket has opened another branch in Nairobi’s Westlands at the Westgate Mall bringing in total its number of stores in the country to 12.
Over 200 job openings are now up for grabs and the new branch will serve residents of Westlands, Parklands and the larger Thigiri area.
“As we continue to grow and expand our presence in Nairobi, we remain committed to addressing our customers’ needs effectively by offering convenient and unbeatable shopping experiences. Our Carrefour Market model underscores our customer-centric approach, allowing us to serve our communities by providing them with a store that caters to their everyday shopping needs closer to their place of residence.” Said Franck Moreau, Country Manager of Carrefour Kenya at Majid Al Futtaim Retail.
The retailer will provide customers with a selected assortment of essentials along with light household items and small electrical appliances that are the most relevant to customers’ everyday life.
The Westgate store will also introduce several digital services. The shopping delivery, or “Valet trolley” will give customers the chance to shop and have their goods ready for collection at the store. The retailer said in a statement.
With the looming calls to go digital, the retailer said its Click & Collect service will allow customers to shop online and then drop by the mall to have their shopping brought to the trunk of their car.
It will also create opportunities for local suppliers and manufacturers to directly supply goods and services to the new store.
The opening of the Westgate store follows the recent Carrefour openings in Kwale County at Diani Centre Point Plaza and at the Nextgen mall, along Mombasa road in Nairobi.
