The challenge

In Mall of Qatar, Majid Al Futtaim – Carrefour, planned to open a special store, so they hired Malherbe, a French design company, to develop a premium concept of Hypermarket. ITAB La Fortezza was trusted to make their idea come true.

Based on Malherbe’s design we were challenged to recreate the new shelving design and decoration of the store, but keeping the same merchandising profiles used in their other hypermarket stores.

The solution

In result, to accomplish the task that we were assigned to do, we developed new products to add into our standard F25 system.

It wasn’t just some accessories that we developed, we also created a complete new set of products for areas such as bakery, fruit and vegetables, welcome desk/costumer counter, tablet/laptop tables and mobile counter. 

Providing a complete solution in such a big project, ITAB La Fortezza allowed the client to focus on different areas or even on different projects.

“ If it wasn’t for you, I didn’t know where to find all the solutions for this concept “

The result

" The decoration provided by ITAB La Fortezza is exactly as the concept, I like it a lot …” 

" The mobile counter is great, we want to install similar ones in all other stores in Qatar! I’ve already included it in next year’s budget…”

Having modular solutions in areas where normally everything is custom-made, gave more versatility to those areas, allowing those who work in the store to perform their day to day tasks more efficiently.

Clients will enjoy their shopping as if they are in a traditional market or street store, instead of being inside a 12.000 mHypermarket.
