Carrefour Celebrates 50 Years Of The UAE

Carrefour – which is owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim in the UAE – is treating the UAE community to huge savings, fantastic prizes, and surprising giveaways in celebration of the 50 years of the UAE’s formation. Carrefour’s biggest ever National Day campaign begins from 22nd November, whilst a special activation from 2 – 4 December is set to see Carrefour give out free ice cream to various communities across the UAE.

Bernardo Perloiro, Chief Operating Officer of Carrefour UAE at Majid Al Futtaim Retail, said: “We are proud to be part of UAE’s past and future. In the next fifty years and beyond, our aim is to elevate our retail offering in line with the government’s Vision 2071 by exploring new technologies, boosting the local economy, and hitting our sustainable target to become Net Positive by 2040. As part of Majid Al Futtaim’s commitment to hire 3,000 Emirati employees in the next 5 years, we too are dedicated to recruiting more Emirati talent at Carrefour. We always put our people first, which is why we are spreading Carrefour’s message of positivity and national pride to our surrounding communities with AED 2. 5M in prizes and running fantastic offers to help our customers save and look forward to the next 50.”

The Emirati retailer, who recently celebrated its 26th anniversary of being part of the UAE community, is giving away AED 2. 5M in the run up to National Day to over five thousand Carrefour customers. Every day, 500 customers will win AED 500, whilst 5 lucky customers will be randomly selected to win AED 50,000 on 2 December. In addition, 500 products will be on sale with up to 50 per cent discount on major categories including food and beverage, local fresh produce, electronics, home and kitchen appliances, and much more.

From 2 – 4 December, Carrefour’s very own branded ice cream trucks will be visiting selected neighbourhoods covering Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, and Ajman. Emirati employees of the leading retailer have volunteered to treat residents and tourists alike to a free ice cream. Delicious flavours that represent the colours of the UAE flag will ensure there is something for everyone this National Day.

As a leading retailer, Carrefour is a testament to the pivotal role of the private sector in accelerating the nation’s economic, industrial, and technological growth as it continues to launch regional “firsts” in retail such as Carrefour City+ and the brand’s recent partnership with Yandex to bring autonomous robot delivery to Dubai. Through extensive giveaways and exciting initiatives, Carrefour is also supporting the government’s aim to forge a cohesive society by focusing on the deep connections between people and inspiring joy beyond its stores.
