It also houses a huge area dedicated to department store items such as electronics, IT products, home appliances, sports, stationery, furnishings and furniture and fashion brands for ladies, gents and kids. It has put in place 40 cash counters to ensure hassle-free shopping experience for shoppers. The new hypermarket promises to offer international standard of shopping experience to the residents of Riyadh.

“We are very clear in our approach to expansion I am very confident about the economic situation of Saudi Arabia and have full trust in the visions of King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz and we are fully committed to continue our forwards march,” says Yusuffali.  “Lulu will open eight more hypermarkets in different parts of the Kingdom in the next 24 months,” he adds.

This hypermarket is expected to become the shopping destination of choice for residents of Riyadh. In addition, and in true tradition of Lulu stores across the Gulf, the hypermarket will feature the widest choice of world-class brands at the fairest prices and also offer a whole world of shopping with a good selection of brands and product lines under one roof. Lulu’s winning formula of value for money quality shopping will be a matter of delight for the residents of Riyadh who will cherish the pleasurable shopping experience and the economy it offers.
