Here’s a way to stretch those dirhams…

If you’re in charge of shopping for groceries in the household, you would have noticed that you’re paying more than you usually would at the till. Don’t worry, it’s not just you who feels this way.

Carrefour has noticed the increase in the cost of living and in order to help residents, it has announced it will be freezing the prices of 200 everyday essentials until the end of the year.


Owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim, Carrefour is locking the prices of a number of everyday necessities such as pasta, rice, cooking oil, ground coffee and sugar.

According to the hypermarket, the extended price lock ‘underlines Carrefour’s unwavering commitment in delivering value through every experience, helping customers to make their money go further whilst shopping.’

Carrefour has negotiated with a huge range of suppliers in order for shoppers to purchase cupboard essentials, favourite sweet and savoury snacks, and delicious spreads frozen at the lowest possible price.
