PARIS — France's Carrefour, the world's second largest retailer after Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said Wednesday that second-quarter sales grew 6.7 percent at constant exchange rates, despite a drop in its hypermarket sales at home.
Sales in the three months through June 30 advanced to 23.72 billion euros, or $37.08 billion, from 22.37 billion euros, or $30.16 billion, in same period last year, below most analysts' expectations. Excluding new openings and acquisitions, sales in the quarter grew 2.2 percent.
