Carrefour Henrikh Mkhitaryan Arsenal Jersey , which was the world’s second-biggest retailer at the start of the century after US giant Wal-Mart, has since slipped to ninth position, according to the Deloitte consultancy, having been overtaken by Amazon and Costco.
“Carrefour has not sufficiently developed with its customers,” CEO Alexandre Bompard told a news conference.
Some 2,400 jobs will be cut in Carrefour’s French operations via voluntary redundancies, the group said.
Many of the cuts will be made at Carrefour’s 12 French headquarters Hector Bellerin Arsenal Jersey , which total 10,500 employees and are, according to Bompard, staffed “out of proportion” compared to its competitors.

The group said it will also accelerate its online development, aiming for a 20-percent market share in French online food sales, and open at least 2,000 new neighborhood outlets in its French home market in coming years.
Carrefour is hoping for 2 billion euros (US$2.45 billion) of annual savings from 2020 onwards thanks to the restructuring as it streamlines logistics and overheads.
Bompard said the group would sell 500 million euros worth of non-strategic assets over the next three years.

Analysts at Aurel BGC welcomed the plan Danny Welbeck Arsenal Jersey , saying it was aimed at relaunching the retailer which is “worn out from years of strong competition and the rise of digital.”
