Carrefour Poland aims to resume expansion in Poland and sees opportunity beyond small-box formats, according to Hypermarkets Director, Robert Nocen. The retailer said it is financially prepared to capitalize on acquisition opportunities and quoted the eight Real stores that have not been assimilated by Auchan as one of the most probable leads. At the same time, the retailer is also pushing on re-purposing large supermarket stores as compact hypermarkets. Carrefour has one hypermarket scheduled to be opened by the end of 2014, two more in 2015 and one more in 2016.
