    Default Carrefour To Close Store In Singapore

    Oh no, Carrefour is going to close down both outlets in Suntec City and Plaza Singapura before end of this year. They are pulling out from Singapore....

    Carrefour leaves Singapore, Suntec City & Plaza Sing stores to shut

    I was shopping at Carrefour Suntec just 2 days ago. They were having some massive promo for their house brands. And we couldn't find a particular house brand item and was informed it was sold out and no stock at the moment. I was wondering at that time if there was a possibilty that they might be pulling out.... didn't expect it to be true.

    They have stated earlier that they want to focus on China... all other markets too kachang puteh to matter.

    Someone told me they've abandoned their plan to leave MY and will be staying put, at least for now.
    But I don't think they're doing very well in MY compared to say Giant or Tesco.

    Ouch.
    One less supermarket brand to choose from.
    They have a hard time with so many NTUC supermarts and a few NTUC Finest supermarts across the island.

    Location is key and Suntec is really out of the way. Transportation is a huge cost for consumers.
    At night when the workers have gone home, not many people go to this area.

    One would not specially go to Carrefour if there are other good supermarts like Jason, Cold Storage, Giant nearby or conveniently along the way.
