LuLu Hypermarket opened its much awaited branch in Riyadh on 6th June 2012. This is the 4th LuLu Hypermarket in Saudi Arabia and the 103rd from the LuLu Group. Located in the famous Ibn Sulaiman Commercial Center in the bustling business hub of Al Batha, this new hypermarket will offer over 200,000 sq. ft. of shopping space to the residents of Riyadh.
Yusuff Ali M. A., during the inaugural ceremony said, “It is with immense pride and pleasure that we inaugurate our 103rd outlet here. This momentous occasion is even more special for us since we have just crossed our twentieth year of retailing. Over the last two decades of success and accomplishments, we have earned the reputation of providing our customers with an unparalleled and world-class shopping experience. The LuLu experience of quality and value is for everyone to experience from every corner of Saudi Arabia, and this is our commitment. Our plans for Saudi are quite ambitious and the premise for this is the stable political climate under the wise leadership of HRH King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, Custodian of Two Holy Mosques, which has propelled the nation on to the fast track of development”.
Yusuff Ali M. A. also praised the pro-development and liberalized policies which have attracted substantial investments to Saudi Arabia. “In Saudi, our plans are to bring more and more world-class shopping centers to different regions and give customers a feel of world-class shopping at close proximity rather than making them drive long distances,” he added.
The sprawling new store offers customers an expansive retail experience and the store’s look and feel ensures an uncluttered, luxuriant, and cosmopolitan shopping environment. Spread over an area of 200,000 sq. ft., LuLu Hypermarket, Al Batha will be a complete shopping destination that will cater to the growing consumer demands that include everything from fresh vegetables, fruits, hot food, bakery, and grocery to fashion garments, electronics and home appliances. For the added benefit of the customers this store will also house exclusive counters for Jewelry, Mobile, Perfumes, Watches and Cosmetics. And in true tradition of LuLu stores across the Gulf, the new hypermarket will feature the widest choice of world class brands at the fairest prices and also offer a good selection of brands and products under one roof. LuLu's winning formula of value for money shopping will be a matter of delight for the residents of Riyadh.
With 3 stores in Riyadh and 1 in Al Khobar, LuLu has firmly established itself as one of the most preferred retail destinations among both locals and the large expatriate community residing here. The chain records a whopping 500,000 plus footfalls every day and is the preferred destination for diverse and multi-ethnic shoppers. The LuLu philosophy has always been ‘good quality products at affordable prices with best service.’
“The response and acceptability we have got from the residents in Saudi is very encouraging and we will continue with our expansion plans here and will soon announce the details of our new projects” added Mr. Yusuff Ali.
