A general product offering with low prices every day

Hypermarkets are large stores offering a wide range of food and non-food items, low prices and targeted promotions: the ideal store format for anyone doing a major shopping trip.

With sales areas of between 2,400 and 23,000 sq.m., Carrefour’s hypermarkets are perfect for all major shopping trips. Customers can find an assortment of 20,000 to 80,000 products, both food (fresh produce, consumer goods, local products, etc.) and non-food (clothing, electronic goods, decorative products, leisure, etc). Around the world, Carrefour’s hypermarkets strive to provide high quality and protect their customers’ purchasing power by offering low prices year-round. Hypermarkets in France and Argentina, for example, maintained in 2013 their “lowest price guarantee” on the most commonly purchased everyday products.
Customers also benefit from innovative new services, like single checkout lines in Belgium, Poland, and France. Customer satisfaction is also bolstered by frequent promotions and events introducing new products, slashed prices, or the diverse range of services offered.

In 2013, Carrefour launched a modernisation plan to improve quality of service and welcome. The renovation programme of stores, car parks, and shopping centres is underway. Learn more about the modernisation plan.

The Hypermarket celebrates its 50th anniversary
On June 15, 1963, Carrefour opened the first hypermarket in France, in Sainte-Geneviève-des-Bois. It was the first step in an adventure, supported by employees who are committed to providing a wide selection of high-quality products at the best possible price, every day. A series of events were held throughout 2013 to celebrate the anniversary, bringing together employees, customers, suppliers, and partners – the people who have made Carrefour what it is today, and always will.

Hypermarkets worldwide

At the end of 2014, Carrefour had 1,459 hypermarkets under banners, with 237 in France, 489  in the rest of Europe, 291 in Latin America, 375 in Asia, and 67 in other countries.
