The two-level store is offering the entire line of groceries, home appliances, electronics, IT products, fashion, stationery, sports and services ancillary. Moreover, this expansive retail facility’s key focus will primarily be on fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and seafood, all offered under one roof.
In keeping with its endeavour to provide the best quality products in the most hygiene manner, Lulu Hypermarket has invested heavily in special areas like state-of-the-art storing facilities, latest baking and cooking machines. It also features a number of outlets including money exchange, opticals, hair spa, kid’s salon and mobile shops, among others.

With the rapid economic growth being witnessed all around the UAE, we strongly feel we should be closer to our customers so that they do not have to make long trips to meet their shopping needs,” he adds.
