30h May, Abu Dhabi — LuLu, the largest hypermarket chain in the region, opened its 210th store at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), Abu Dhabi, yesterday. The store, a LuLu Express Fresh Market was inaugurated by Ahmed Al Mansoori (Director Engineering Services -ADNEC) in the presence of Mr. Ashraf Ali, Executive Director of LuLu Group, Mr. Saifee Rupawala, CEO of LuLu Group and Mr. Aboobakker TP, Director- Abu Dhabi & Al Dhafra Region as well as government dignitaries, and other LuLu officials.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Ashraf Ali M.A., said: “The LuLu Express Fresh Market concept is a part of our expansion plans and demonstrates how flexible and open the LuLu Group is to retail market demands and community requirements.
