French supermarket chain Carrefour has announced sales worth Sh13.87 billion from its Kenyan outlets for the 2018 financial year.

Majid Al Futtaim, the exclusive holder of Carrefour’s franchise in Kenya, said the rise in sales from Sh8.11 billion in 2017 was due to the chain’s expansion efforts.

Carrefour launched operations in Kenya three years ago and currently operates seven stores located at The Hub in Karen, Village Market, Two Rivers Mall, Thika Road Mall (TRM), Sarit Centre mall in Westlands, The Junction along Ngong road and Galleria Mall.

Globally, Majid Al Futtaim operates over 270 Carrefour stores across 15 markets and is actively seeking opportunities to open more locations in Kenya and the wider East African region.
