Carrefour has revealed a 59 percent increase in new customers onto its online platform, as shoppers choose to go down the digital route during the current coronavirus crisis.

The supermarket giant also told Arabian Business that its online business witnessed a 32 percent increase in the first two weeks of March, compared to the same period the previous month.

A spokesperson for Carrefour UAE said: “To cater to increased demand for delivery orders, we’ve opened six new fulfilment centres across the region.
