Carrefour Replaces Dos Mares Eroski Store in San Javier
The Carrefour hypermarket is to open in San Javier in late-February, as it takes over the Eroski store in the Dos Mares shopping centre. The Mayor of San Javier, José Miguel Luengo, got a briefing this week from Carrefour’s regional manager, Amparo Capilla, about the move which will see the old Eroski store close on Monday February 6th, and then reopened under the Carrefour brand on Thursday February 23rd.
In March last year, the Eroski hypermarket chain took the decision to scale down their operations in Alicante Province and the Murcia region, as they sold off a package of 36 outlets to Carrefour in a 200-million-euro-plus deal.
Carrefour’s Amparo Capilla said all the jobs of the Eroski workers at their Dos Mares store have been guaranteed, and that the company was looking to boost the workforce by 30 percent. She said that the company planned to be a “good friend of San Javier”, and that it would look into the possibility of more local suppliers joining Carrefour’s approved list of 240 regional suppliers.
