Carrefour and Casino:

This weekend, fall is officially installed in France, but the relationship between Carrefour and Casino, the two giants of the distribution, are directly passed through to the winter temperatures. Meeting Sunday, the board of directors of the distribution group of saint-etienne published at the court of the night a press release to deny an "attempted reconciliation" which he would have been subject to the hand of its competitor, Carrefour. While the latter, directed by Alexandre Bompard for a little over a year ago, has quickly replicated in order to deny the "insinuations unacceptable", and even threatened legal action. Crossroads recognizes, however, that a meeting took place on 12 September, but at the initiative of the Casino, which would seek a financial support. A call for help that would have been snubbed.
