Carrefour has entered the Belgian market in 2001, by the purchase of GB. Only operations were acquired, since GB separately sold the real-estate part. Carrefour is thus the lessee on all his sites, except for two of them. Carrefour operates in 3 formats: Hypermarkets/Carrefour, Supermarkets/Market and convenience stores/Express, plus one store ROB, the Gourmets Market, a premium supermarket format.
Around 730 stores operate under Carrefour brands, out of which 500 are leased, the remaining are managed by franchisees.
In Belgium, the Property Division teams count 7 people.
