March 30, 2016 | By RetailME Bureau

Middle East retail conglomerate Lulu Group opened its sixth hypermarket in Bahrain at Zinj’s Galleria Mall.

The new hypermarket, which is Lulu’s 124th outlet globally, was officially inaugurated by HE Shaikh Khaled bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, deputy prime minister of Bahrain in the presence of Bahraini minister for industry & commerce Zayed Al Zayani, labour minister Jamil Humaidan, British ambassador Simon Martin CMG, US ambassador William Roebuck, Indian ambassador Alok Kumar Sinha, Lulu Group chairman Yusuffali MA, prominent businessman Mohammed Dadabhai, Lulu Group CEO Saifee Rupawala, executive director Ashraf Ali MA, Bahrain regional director Juzer Rupawala and other top officials.

Located next to the Al Ahli Sports Club and adjacent to the US Embassy, the new hypermarket will serve residents of Salmaniya and Zinj and offers easy access to Tubli and Isa Town residents as well. As always, Lulu hypermarket provides the widest range of quality and value-for-money products all under one roof. The outlet has also introduced inaugural offers and deals for a range of products at attractive prices.

“The opening of the 124th Lulu Hypermarket in the Kingdom of Bahrain and the sixth in the country is a moment of great pride for the Lulu Group,” says Yusuffali. “As announced earlier, this new hypermarket is part of our committed BD100 million investment plan for Bahrain. The group will open two more hypermarkets by the end of 2017 at Saar and Busaidi in Bahrain.”

“Our growth in Bahrain is powered by the vision of the leadership, the business-friendly economic environment and the ability of our Bahraini employees to absorb and fit into the Lulu service model which puts customers above all,” he adds. “We thank His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, HRH prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the prime minister and HRH prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the crown prince, first deputy premier and the people of this great country for encouraging us in all our expansion strategies and efforts in Bahrain.”

Commenting on providing training and employment opportunity to the educated Baharaini youth, Yusuffali states, “It is also our endeavour to nurture the local talent and a proof of this is our strong Bahraini work force that forms the nucleus of our operations here in Bahrain. Currently Lulu provides best quality training to absorb them in various managerial and specialised sections. There are more than 1,200 Bahrainis who work with us not only here but in other GCC countries too and we will continue to support the governments’ Bahranisation plan by giving employment to more Bahrainis in our new projects.”
