Carrefour’s self-checkout service now available at the Hub Store


Carrefour has announced the launch of its self-checkout service at the Hub store, in Karen.

The retail stores owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim first launched the service in Kenya in March last year to attract customers eager to shop and complete purchases by themselves.

The service is also meant to be a time-saving approach, moving from the inconvenience of queuing for a long time.  However, the service will only be used by buyers with less than 15 items.

In a statement, Carrefour said the service underlines the brand’s ongoing commitment to creating seamless shopping experiences.

It added that the service ”..allows customers to shop and complete purchases without needing the assistance of cashiers at the cash counter, saving time and avoiding inconveniences caused by long queues.”

This introduction marks Carrefour’s third store in the country to offer the self-checkout service following two successful launches at the Westgate Shopping Mall store and the Village Market.

The self-checkout lane accepts cashless payment options including Mpesa, debit or credit cards, and MyCLUB loyalty points.
