Latest opening marks the sixth Carrefour concept store for Majid Al Futtaim in the UAE

Majid Al Futtaim, the Middle East and North Africa’s leading shopping mall, retail and leisure pioneer, has today announced the opening of its latest Carrefour City store at Dubai’s Sports City (DSC).

Marking the sixth store to open in the retailer’s Carrefour City portfolio since 2014 and the first Carrefour supermarket to open in this vibrant Dubai precinct, it represents the ‘ultimate neighborhood convenience store’. Ideally situated in the heart of DSC on the ground floor of upmarket residential tower, The Matrix, the store meets the daily grocery shopping needs of residents and visitors alike, offering a wide range of competitively-priced Carrefour products, all under one roof.

“We are delighted to be able to offer our valued residents and visitors to Dubai Sports City easy access to one of the world’s top supermarket brands at The Matrix,” said Danny Lubert, Joint Chairman of Dubai’s leading property development firm, The First Group, which opened The Matrix in November last year.

“The Matrix is already known for its iconic design, premier location and hospitality excellence and the opening of Carrefour City on the ground floor of the property is the icing on the cake, providing our residents with another world-class service. The strategic location of this convenience store also reflects the fast-paced growth of this thriving Dubai district.”
