Tesco banned from buying Carrefour’s Slovak stores

5 January 2007 — Bratislava (SVK): Tesco has been banned from acquiring four Carrefour hypermarkets in Slovakia by the country’s Antimonopoly Office.

The Slovak competition watchdog said that the transaction would boost Tesco’s dominant market position while crowding out competition.

 

Tesco has 15 days to appeal the decision.
