These smaller stores will focus exclusively on food products. Hagège and Amiel already own a Parisian Monoprix store. 

 

Aside from food products, Monoprix has tools, clothing, cosmetics, household items and gift items in its array of products. Monoprix used to be a joint venture between Casino and Galeries Lafayette, but has been Casino’s sole propriety from this Summer onwards, when it bought Galeries Lafayette’s 50 % stake.
