In March of 2018, Amazon announced the launch of a project focused on delivering groceries in France. It made this possible thanks to a partnership with Monoprix, by letting them sell its products to customers in Paris, through Amazons delivery service. Following this successful launch, Monoprix now wants to further expand this partnership.
‘Working on a roll out with Amazon’
“We are now covering all of Paris and we are working on a roll out with Amazon whose sole geographic constraint is the presence of Monoprix stores”, chief executive Regis Schultz told at a news conference. Jean-Charles Naouri, the CEO of holding company Casino Group, even said the partnership exceeded “what had been budgeted”, although he didn’t give any further details.
