LuLu Group further strengthened its presence in Salalah with the grand launch of its hypermarket located at the newly developed Salalah Grand Mall, which is the 26th branch in Oman and 199th globally. The new store, which is spread over an area of about 100,000 square feet in a single level, was inaugurated with the support of government officials and the senior management of LuLu.
With its modern design and convenient layout, the new store offers over a wide range of high-quality products under categories like food, home furnishings, fashion, footwear, household and much more. Salalah emerges as a promising tourist destination especially during the Khareef season, particularly on account of the thrust on tourism projects by the Government. The development of properties like the Salalah Grand Mall with a strong footfall driver like LuLu and other world-class brands is expected to provide a boost to the sectorial growth in the Dhofar Governorate.

These projects are also a part of the Group’s commitment to the community and will generate direct and in-direct employment opportunities within the local community”, he added.
Speaking on the launch of the new store, Ananth A.V, Director of LuLu Group – Oman & India, said, “We are excited about our association with Salalah Grand Mall for the value they bring into this project and appreciate the mall management for giving us the opportunity to be the anchor store. While we are happy to increase our presence at Salalah, LuLu in Oman has very fond memories of Salalah from where we started our first store to having 26 stores today in the Sultanate with several more in the pipeline. This hypermarket is an important milestone in our quest to deliver quality products and a shopping experience that’s world-class”.
