OREANDA-NEWS. On 31 August 2016, the EFR (European Forecourt Retail) Group is reopening its Paris Lecourbe BP service station with a brand-new Carrefour Express store. The opening of this new convenience retail outlet is the culmination of 20 years of active partnership, serving customers of both brands. It also marks a new milestone in the roll-out of stores located in high-traffic areas.

Opening of a new Carrefour Express store in central Paris
The partners are reopening the newly-overhauled Paris Lecourbe BP service station – located in the capital's 15th arrondissement – with a new BP visual identity. And the store has now been converted into a Carrefour Express store. Over a 123 m? sales area, the mini supermarket stocks a wide range of some 2900 Carrefour and national brand daily-use products. These include grocery products, fruit and vegetables, ready-to-cook/eat products, snacks and home maintenance products. Open 24 hours a day, this new store will help to stimulate the local economy.
A long-term partnership designed to serve customers

This opening marks 20 years of active collaboration between Carrefour and EFR

The first 8 à Huit store – incorporated into a Nice service station – was opened in 1996. Since then, the two companies have worked closely together and were the first to open a convenience store at a motorway site. Now in France, more than 100 EFR Group service stations have links with the Carrefour Group (under the Carrefour Express, 8 ? Huit and Proxi banners) – either in town centres or at motorway service stations.
