COVID-19 Impact on Carrefour SA

Carrefour SA is better placed than many specialist retailers to cope with the effects of COVID-19, due to the fact that almost all of its physical stores remain operational during lockdown

Stockpiling and bulk buying – fueling volume growth and average transaction values across both physical and online channels.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) company impact report analyses how the pandemic will impact Carrefour's performance.


– Group sales are now forecast to rise 3.0% in 2020, versus a flat performance in 2019 and our original 2020 forecast of 1.1% – highlighting how the crisis has provided a critical boost to its performance after two years of tougher trading.

– Carrefour’s extensive online presence in countries it operates in has proven essential during the crisis. It registered significant growth in the number of daily orders and new subscribers to its online platforms in several markets

– We expect its hypermarket formats to see a continued reduction in footfall over Q2 as consumers shop closer to home and non-food areas in some stores are closed off, putting pressure on its smaller supermarket formats and online channel to serve customers.
