Tashkent, Uzbekistan, September 8, 2021: Majid Al Futtaim, the leading shopping mall, communities, retail and leisure operator across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, has opened its first Carrefour hypermarket in Uzbekistan, at Compass Mall, in the Bektemir district of Tashkent.

In line with its commitment to provide an unrivalled choice of quality products at unbeatable value, the newly launched Carrefour hypermarket offers more than 40,000 food and non-food items including household goods; textile products; its private label items; as well as a large variety of ecological (bio) products. 

As part of its ongoing efforts to prioritise customer experience, the hypermarket has also introduced unique in-store concepts such as a food court, tandoor, sushi bar, bakery, and a pizzeria. Customers can now enjoy a selection of fresh pastries, ready-to-eat products, delicacies, and fulfil their necessary shopping requirements through a wide selection of non-food products.

Placing customers’ comfort at the forefront of operations, the hypermarket also provides special priority checkout lines for pregnant women and people with special needs to create greater convenience. Self-checkouts and free Wi-Fi are also widely available across the hypermarket.

Gyu Taeg Kim, Country Manager of Carrefour Uzbekistan at Majid Al Futtaim Retail, commented: “In December 2020, we launched Uzbekistan’s first Carrefour supermarket and today we are proudly celebrating the opening of yet another store in Compass Mall. This expansion is fuelled by our belief in building a vast network of stores from the region and for the region so that our communities far and wide have convenient access to our modernised retail experiences. Secondly, so that we can become a major player in Uzbekistan’s local economy by providing upskilling and job opportunities to local talent.” 

This fourth opening follows the introduction of Carrefour to the country in December 2020, as the brand continues to seek expansion opportunities in the markets it serves. Striving to offer a unique shopping experience to more customers, Carrefour’s growth also aims to create value for the Uzbek economy through job creation.

In addition to the store opening, Carrefour is set to launch another new hypermarket in Tashkent at the end of December 2021. The store will be in the largest shopping and entertainment centre in Samarqand Darvoza.
