The company is currently awaiting the verdict of a court case set to take place on Wednesday regarding the closure of the Nakumatt Junction branch.

French retailer Carrefour has shown interest in taking over the Nakumatt’s space at Junction Mall. This comes after the company announced that they will be taking over Nakumatt’s space at Thika Road Mall in November.

“As announced before, Carrefour is actively seeking opportunities to grow and expand its footprint in Kenya and the region.  We will therefore consider taking up the anchor tenancy at The Junction,” Carrefour Kenya country manager, Franck Moreau said.

“We will notify you formally, should we take the space.”
