Carrefour customers in the UAE have been offered the opportunity to purchase an array of non-food items online for the first time.

The new initiative from the world's second largest retailer means that customers will now have access to over 3,000 items when they visit

"We live in the age of the internet and as Carrefour is committed to offering customers choice, flexibility and convenience, launching an online store seemed the next natural step for us in the region," commented Henry Changeux, GCC country head of Carrefour.

It was revealed that customers can now purchase cameras, mobiles, printers, gaming products, TVs, home appliances, garden furniture, homeware, and some cosmetic items at Carrefour's UAE online site.

The retailer also confirmed that free delivery is available on all orders over AED1,000 and an average of AED12 for any orders under this amount.

Carrefour currently has 37 hypermarkets in the Middle East.
