Middle East retailer Lulu Group opened its new hypermarket in Dubai’s Al Warqa area today (June 6). The new 120,000-sqft hypermarket is one of the biggest Lulu Hypermarkets in Dubai.

The group’s 147th hypermarket was officially inaugurated by Sami Al Qamzi, director general of the Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai in the presence of Tariq Al Gurg, CEO of Dubai Cares and other dignitaries. Lulu Group chairman Yusuffali MA, CEO Saifee Rupawala, executive director Ashraf Ali MA and other Lulu officials were also present on the occasion.

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.

Commenting on the inauguration, Yusuffali says, “This shows the kind of demand for quality shopping that exists here, and we are extremely happy to bring again another world-class shopping experience as close as possible to the residents of Al Warqa and its nearby areas.”

Commenting on group’s expansion plans, he added that twenty new hypermarkets are expected to be operational in the next two years in Dubai and the northern emirates region. “These new projects reflect our ambitious growth plans for the UAE in sync with the EXPO 2020, and our commitment to providing both citizens and residents in this part of the UAE with an unparalleled shopping experience. 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.
