retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Published reports say that Carrefour is about to test a new hypermarket concept in France that will reduce the emphasis on nonfoods and put greater focus on fresh foods and convenience-oriented items.

If the test is successful, the company - the second biggest retailer in the world, after Walmart - will consider expanding it to many of its other French stores.
KC's View:
But will it still be a hypermarket?

Or is this an existential question that need not be asked and answered? (Still, I cannot help myself...)
