Carrefour will open two more supermarkets in Tashkent in March-April. They will be located in the Samarqand Darvoza and Compass malls, Carrefour Uzbekistan reported. The first Carrefour supermarket was opened in Tahskent city at the end of December on Karatash street.
On January 7, Dubai-based Majid Al Futtaim, which operates the Carrefour brand on a franchise basis, signed an agreement with UzOman, a private equity fund in Uzbekistan that owns Samarqand Darvoza and Compass.
“The launch of the new supermarkets underscores our desire to meet the growing demand for modern retail in Uzbekistan, as well as the growing needs of customers,” said Taeg Kim, general manager of Carrefour Uzbekistan at Majid Al Futtaim Retail.
In October 2019, Majid Al Futtaim signed a deal with Akfa Group to open seven supermarkets in Tashkent. They will be hosted at facilities owned by Akfa.
