GMG set to open 47 shops this year


January 17, 2015 | By RetailME Bureau

UAE-based Gulf Marketing Group (GMG) has announced plans to open a further 47 shops in 2015. The new openings will be across core retail divisions – Sun & Sand Sports, Good Health and Supercare Pharmacy – while 2015 will also see the launch of Middle East’s first Sun Coast outdoor furniture store.

The expansion plan follows GMG’s 42 new store openings across the Gulf in 2014. Since the beginning of 2014, GMG had launched 38 new outlets for its flagship brand Sun & Sand Sports, three new Good Health stores and added one Super Care Pharmacy to its extensive regional portfolio.

“Last year was fantastic for GMG, marking the most significant growth period in the group’s nearly 40-year history. With 42 new store openings across the Gulf, we have continued to expand our regional footprint and respond to the growing market and customer demands. Our success this year puts GMG on a robust growth path as we continue to work towards achieving our long-terms business goals,” says Mohammad A Baker, deputy chairman and CEO, GMG.

GMG said its growth has been driven by continued business development in established regions such as Saudi Arabia and the UAE, as well as entry into new markets. Over the past year, GMG has opened its first Sun & Sand Sports outlet in Kuwait and launched Nike Yas – the first and largest multi-category brand experience Nike store in the Middle East.
