Carrefour was unable to compete with other retail companies on the Slovak market due to lack of innovation and organizational issues. The only hypermarket was closed in Košice only after a few months.

Carrefour changed its owner in the last few years but even local businessman Jozef Spirko was unable to magic returns, the last shop in Petrzalka was closed in January 2018.

Carrefour opened its first supermarket in Slovakia in 2000 and started the tradition of big sellouts half a decade later, however it got into trouble with authorities when it turned out that part of the advertised discounted products were fictional.
