Mass consumption conquers Africa: After Douala, Carrefour arrives in Yaounde
With the advent of EPAs, many mass consumer brands have arrived in Africa. After Douala in 2017, the French brand Carrefour arrives in Yaoundé Wednesday, October 9.
The arrival of Carrefour in Yaoundé was accompanied by a land dispute. The sign claims to have signed a 35-year emphyteutic lease with the authorities, but a local family would challenge him. A priori crossroads managed to pass this obstacle, and will open his store in Eki.
Even before the opening of this supermarket, a second one is already under construction in the center of Yaoundé, near the emblematic Palais des Sports and the Bois Sainte Anastasie. This store, result of a joint venture between Carrefour-CFAO, should open early 2021. ©Dzaleu.com
