September 22, 2015 | By RetailME Bureau

Abu Dhabi-based Lulu Group has opened its 118th outlet in Sinaw, a town located on the Batinah coast of Sultanate of Oman. The new hypermarket is in line with its stated policy to reach out to people in towns of the Sultanate and to provide a world-class shopping experience closer to its customers.

The new store was officially inaugurated by Sheikh Yahya bin Hamoud Hamed Al Maamari, governor of Al Sharqiya North, accompanied by Yusuffali MA, managing director, Lulu Group; executive director Ashraf Ali; CEO Saifee Rupawala; Ananth AV, regional director – Oman; and other senior dignitaries.

Spread across 125,000 sqft the hypermarket provides the widest range of quality and value-for-money products all under one roof. It has separate sections for fresh fruits and vegetables, meat and poultry, dairy products, ready-to-eat products and a live bakery. The outlet also offers a huge area dedicated to electronics, IT products, home appliances, sports, furnishing and furniture, daily needs, personal care, kitchenware, crockery, toys, apparel and stationery and health and beauty products. The new hypermarket is Lulu’s 15th outlet in Oman and also offers a wide choice of world-class fashion brands and products for men, women and children.

The systematically arranged sections promise customers an easy and hassle-free shopping experience. Extra-wide aisles, extensively laid out counters and ample parking space are some of the distinguishing features of the new store.

“With more than a decade of success and accomplishment in Oman, Lulu is now pleased to embark on a new journey to reach customers in the interior areas of the Sultanate. The opening of the new store is indeed a moment of great pride and joy. We plan to open more Lulu stores in the interior regions in the coming months as we believe that every customer should be able to enjoy a world-class shopping experience, no matter where they are,” says Yusuffali.

“The hypermarket will also offer a window of opportunity to the local community. Lulu group has always been firm in its commitment to encourage the locally available talent and empower local communities from wherever we operate. We believe that having a strong national workforce is vital to our long-term success as it helps in creating sustainable community living. We do have an ambitious plan to absorb enterprising youngsters and generate more job opportunities for them in the future,” he adds.
