Halal-Focused Supermarket Opens in Nanterre, France

A new halal-focused supermarket, Hal’Shop de Nanterre, has opened in Nanterre catering to France’s emerging “beurgeosie.” All of its products are 100% halal. The store is located a few steps from an RER stop and occupies 200m2. The owner has said he would not hire niqab-wearing women as it would impede from customer service.
