Following the directives and efforts of the Government of Saudi Arabia to safeguard its citizens and residents in the Kingdom, Fawaz Abdulaziz Alhokair Co. (Alhokair Fashion Retail) has announced that it will reopen its fashion and other retail units effective Wednesday, April 29.
The company said that the health and safety of its customers and employees continue to be of paramount importance and that it is working to ensure the cleanliness and sterilisation of its stores in readiness for reopening.
Stores reopening in shopping centres will be open from 9.30 am to 4.30pm daily, and the company’s food and beverage outlets will remain available through mobile apps for delivery from 3.00pm to 3.00am. A smaller number of retail units that operate in street locations have already reopened.
“Fawaz Abdulaziz Al Hokair wants to thank the authorities and the Ministry of Health for its efforts and actions in creating such favourable conditions to enable us to resume our business operations ahead of most countries,” says Marwan Moukarzel, CEO of Fawaz Abdulaziz Al Hokair.
“In preparation for the opening, we are working closely with our partners to ensure the highest standards of health and safety are in place. During the ongoing crisis, the safety of our customers and staff has been our priority, and we look forward to welcoming our customers back to enjoy shopping during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
“We would request our customers to please take note of the Government’s health and safety precautions to wear a mask and gloves and to ensure appropriate social distancing is observed while shopping.”
As part of the ongoing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and as part of the reopening programme, no refund or exchange of goods will be permitted during this period; changing rooms will always be closed and contactless payments by credit or debit card are encouraged.
Fawaz Abdulaziz Al Hokair operates 1,550 stores across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
