‘Adjustments of internal systems’
The online store of Carrefour Belgium is changing. This means customers can not order some of the products online at the moment. Same-day delivery service ShipTo does still work, which ships to Brussels, Antwerp, Genk and Liège.
“Our adjustments of internal systems require more time.”
The company states on the website: “Dear customer, our adjustments of internal systems require more time. (…) In the meantime, you can try our personal shopper service ‘ShipTo’. You can also certainly still visit our stores. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to welcome you again soon on our website for online orders.”
Food-X Technologies bankrupt
In a response to Dutch website RetailDetail, the company says the reduced offer can last until early next year. The problems are due to the recent bankruptcy of Carrefour’s software partner, Food-X Technologies. The supermarket started working with the Canadian company in 2020.
The new software is expected early 2023.
‘Busy with implementation new software’
The supermarket’s spokesperson Aurélie Gerth says in the same response: “That is why we are busy with the implementation of new warehouse management software. For the time being we have dialed back the capacity of the online shop in anticipation of the go-live of the new software, expected at the beginning of 2023.”
UPDATE Oct 14th: This article previously stated that Carrefour’s online shop in Belgium was malfunctioning and that customers could not place orders. Instead, the capacity of the online shop has been reduced. Customers can still place orders in the online shop.
