Marinopoulos, the exclusive Carrefour franchise holder in Greece, has pulled out of the bid for the Larissa chain. The decision was justified by the lack of support for the move from the majority stakeholders of the Larissa chain.

Marinopoulos has signed an agreement to buy-out Larissa in mid April 2014. The retailer operates 42 stores accounting for 26,300 square meters of selling area and sales of EUR 60 million in 2012.
