PARIS — Carrefour SA, the world’s second-largest retailer behind Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said Thursday that it recorded overall growth in the second quarter as strong sales in emerging economies such as China and Brazil offset weakness in Western Europe.
In the three months ending June 30, sales rose 6.3 percent to 24.92 billion euros, or $31.8 billion. During the first half, sales were up 5.9 percent to 48.88 billion euros, or $65 billion. Dollar figures have been converted at average exchange rates for the periods to which they refer.
