Carrefour History

The history of Carrefour started in 1960, when the first shop was opened within suburban Annecy. The first shop was located near a crossroad. The founders were attended many seminars where they got the influence from Bernardo Trujillo, the “Pope of retail.” Carrefour was the first shop in Europe to open a hypermarket, a department store, and a big supermarket within the same store. The first hypermarket was located in Saite-Genevieve-de-Bois on June 15, 1963. In 1976, the company introduced Produits libres, a private label line of fifty food such as biscuits, oil, pasta, and milk. In 1999, Carrefour merged with Promodes or called the Continent, which was one of its major competitors during that time.

A lot then happened in the 20th century. In September 2009, the company changed its logo. In May 2011, Carrefour realized that its growth was stagnant and that its competitors were increasing. And during the same time, it opened its Carrefour Planet in Western Europe to improve its business situation.

Carrefour’s international operation included its store in the UAE, which is a joint venture with Majid al Futtaim.
