Kathimerini English - - Focus - DIMITRA MANIFAVA

French re­tail chain GiFi, the big­gest in the cat­e­gory of dis­count home equip­ment in France with 444 stores, is on the look­out for Greek ex­port­ing com­pa­nies and Greek pro­duc­ers to co­op­er­ate with, ac­cord­ing to the Athens Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try (EBEA).

The cham­ber has re­ported that a GiFi rep­re­sen­ta­tive has con­tacted the Greek Em­bassy in Paris to ex­press the com­pany’s in­ter­est in co­op­er­a­tion with Greek en­ter- prises. A rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the re­tailer is also ex­pected to visit Greece within 2017 for tar­geted busi­ness meet­ings.

The in­ter­est ap­pears to be gen­uine, as any Greek en­ter­prises wish­ing to ex­plore the pos­si­bil­ity of co­op­er­a­tion with GiFi are re­quested to send de­tails con­cern­ing their turnover, staff num­bers and ex­port des­ti­na­tions to the Eco­nomic and Com­mer­cial Af­fairs Sec­tion of the Greek Em- bassy in Paris by Oc­to­ber 18.

The cat­e­gories in which the French re­tailer seeks co­op­er­a­tion in­clude toys, fes­tive dec­o­ra­tion, fur­ni­ture and gar­den fur­ni­ture, camp­ing equip­ment, home decor, light­ing, elec­tri­cal equip­ment, tools, food pack­ag­ing, food, ap­parel, sports equip­ment, per­sonal hy­giene prod­ucts, com­modi­ties for pets, de­ter­gents, car and bi­cy­cle ac­ces­sories etc.
