One of the leading grocery retail operators of hypermarkets and supermarkets in Saudi Arabia BinDawood Holding opens first Danube supermarket in Bahrain. Located at Al Liwan Project in Hamala in the Northern Governate this marks the first international store opening for BinDawood Holding under its Danube brand.

With this opening the total footprint of BinDawood Holding now stands at 82, of which 55 are under the Danube banner and 27 are under the eponymous BinDawood brand across 16 cities in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

Commenting on the opening, Khalid BinDawood, managing director of BinDawood Holding, said, “Today we celebrate the opening of our first international store by bringing the Danube grocery shopping experience to customers in Bahrain. We are thrilled to be the anchor grocery retailer on the Al Liwan project and bring our new customers in Hamala the unique Danube grocery shopping experience, offering fresh, high-quality and healthy food options for the dynamic community here. The Danube supermarket brand is synonymous with excellence, offering a wide variety of special offers and carefully selected exclusive imported goods. We are delighted this store; a 5,000 square metre [53,820 sqft] space will enhance the grocery shopping experience of the local residents. We are also actively recruiting more staff to work in the store who will support us in providing the supreme customer service and in-store experience of our Danube brand.”

The Bahrain store opening is in line with the company’s ambition to expand its footprint and strengthen its leadership in the grocery retail sector. It is part of an ongoing expansion plan whereby BinDawood Holding is adding five-six new stores per year to its portfolio until 2024. Additionally, BinDawood Holding has plans to bring the BinDawood retail brand to Riyadh in 2023-24, committing to the opening of 10 stores across the province from 2023-27.
