Carrefour;Urumqi

Jerome Chevrier, general manager of Carrefour's north and west regions, wait for customers at a Carrefour store in the International Grand Bazaar complex in Urumqi, capital of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, July 23, 2009. Carrefour, the France-based supermarket chain, reopened its store in Urumqi on July 23 after a 17-day closure forced by the July 5 violence.

Carrefour, the France-based supermarket chain, reopened its flagship store in Urumqi Thursday after a 17-day closure forced by the July 5 violence.

The retailer's store in the Urumqi International Grand Bazaar complex is regarded as the flagship of the three outlets in the city, capital of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

"We are well prepared for the reopening," said Jerome Chevrier, general manager of Carrefour China's north and west regions, in Urumqi Thursday.

The other two stores have remained open because they were far away from the riot-affected areas.

 

Carrefour;Urumqi

Jerome Chevrier, general manager of Carrefour's north and west regions, wait for customers at a Carrefour store in the International Grand Bazaar complex in Urumqi, capital of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, July 23, 2009.

Plans to open two more stores in Xinjiang were on track and the riot, which left 197 people dead, had not affected the firm's investment schemes, he said.

More than 100 customers were waiting outside before the store reopened at around 10:30 a.m.. They were from different ethnic groups, including Han, Hui and Uygur.

Security was tightened as 50 security guards, up from 36 before the July 5 riots, were on duty checking handbags and vehicles.

Zhao Xiangli, manager of the store, told Xinhua that all the 170 employees in the flagship store, along with about 430 in the other two outlets, were paid during the long closure.

"None of them was fired during the closure," she said.

"It's the first day we've opened since the riot and many people have not been informed of the news, so we don't expect a large crowd today," she said.
