This transaction is part of Carrefour’s targeted acquisitions policy, which it intends to continue
Carrefour has announced the closing of the acquisition from Dairy Farm of 224 proximity stores in Taiwan as well as a warehouse.
That includes 199 Wellcome stores – average sales area of 420 sq. m and 25 Jasons stores- average sales area of 820 sq. m.
