Carrefour will open its first cash-and-carry outlet in the country later this year, adding to its Express y Mini convenience stores and local hypermarkets.

The retailer will use the Brazilian brand Atacadão, which it has already exported to Colombia.

The first Argentinean Atacadão will open before the end of the year in Laferrere, Buenos Aires, and will measure 75,000 sq ft after an investment of ARS50m (£8.6m).
