Dutch supermarket operator Laurus has agreed to sell 20 of its Battard and Central Cash stores in Belgium to the Belgian subsidiary of French retail giant Carrefour. Under the agreement the 20 stores will be converted to Carrefour Belgium's Super GB Partner or Contact GB formats from September and will be operated by Laurus Belgium until GB franchisees are nominated by Carrefour to take them over. The transfer should be completed by April 2004, reported Dow Jones News.
