Won't feel too sad to see Carrefour gone, but won't be jubilant either. While their stock is generally okay, I don't like what I see at the spots where they sell prepared food (bread, deli, seafood).Travailes wrote:Gutted. I'm going to miss the choice of French goods they always used to stock at both stores and reasonable prices compared to their competitors. Just bought a load of rose champagne at SG34 a bottle. It's not Bolly but perfectly drinkable. If you believe the paper talk then Giant seem favourites to pick up the leases. Great ! The chain where none of the staff smile; there is wildlife living in the store (Turf City) and their seafood looks so unappetising that I doubt a starving penguin would shop there !

That's why I said reeling...ScoobyDoes wrote:nakatago wrote:Reports say it's because Carrefour is reeling from the European crisis and such.
Haha, yeah..... you can't believe that one.
They've been trying to sell up long before the European crisis started coming to a head, here and Malaysia.
Honestly though, I think it is too much effort here for not enough return. Plain and simple. SMS is right, the margins here probably bring down their worldwide average and whilst they compete with Giant and NTUC here, they compete with Giant and Tesco in Malaysia and in both cases they come in third.
