Home Centre celebrates 20 years with Buy-2-Get-1-Free offer

Home Centre, the largest home retailer in the Middle East, is celebrating 20 years in Saudi Arabia with a Buy-2-Get-1-Free promotion. The brand has expanded its reach throughout the Saudi market, with 36 stores located across the country.
As a gesture to its customers, Home Centre announced a special Buy-2-Get-1-Free promotion on spends above SR250 ($67) at all stores across the Kingdom. The promotion is running from Nov. 23 to Dec. 9.
Médéric Payne, CEO of Home Centre, said: “We pride ourselves on our local network in the Kingdom, and firmly believe in its potential. We have grown here from a single store in 1997, to a flourishing network providing an exceptional brand experience that caters to diverse local tastes, while remaining aligned to global trends.”
He added: “In an attempt to give back to the Kingdom, we make a concerted effort to remain aligned to the strategic priorities of the leadership, as is evidenced in our Saudization and feminization efforts — 48 percent of employees in the Kingdom are Saudi nationals, of which over 21 percent are women.”
Further adding to its reach across Saudi Arabia is Home Centre’s bilingual online platform on desktops and mobile phones, Homecentre.com. Customers can browse and purchase more than 5,500 products ranging from furniture and home accessories from the comfort of their homes.

In the past two decades, Home Centre has firmly established itself as a home-retail brand of choice for consumers across the country. Part of its success can also be attributed to our aim of bringing our stores closer to our customers, making their shopping experience convenient and enjoyable.”
“Home Centre seeks to continually add exceptional value and continually inspire shoppers in Saudi Arabia and across the region with its customer friendly in-store design, extensive portfolio of products, and value-added services with seamless multi-channel shopping,” the home retailer said in a press release.
