The stores will stock over 20,000 food and non-food items each, all under one roof for the convenience and ease of Mombasa residents.The move is a boost to the local economy with Carrefour set to support the city’s local suppliers following the COVID-19 pandemic.

The opening of the three Carrefour stores will raise the total number of the brand’s outlets in Kenya to 11, including eight operational stores in Nairobi.
