Tamimi Markets launches e-commerce platform

Tamimi Markets has launched its e-commerce grocery platform (www.shop.tamimimarkets.com).
The website and app were unveiled on May 15 in the presence of media representatives, top vendors in Saudi Arabia and management officials of Tamimi Markets and Tamimi Group.
The platform offers “Click and Collect” service, which enables customers to buy online from the comfort of their homes and pick up the groceries with an average of three minutes waiting time via a drive-through service at the store.
The service is free of charge and has no minimum purchase amount.
Tamimi Markets CEO Abdulaziz Al-Tamimi said the “Click and Collect” service will add job opportunities for tech-savvy Saudis. “It will offer a special and unique customer experience that combines quality, extensive products and competitive prices every day,” he added.
Tamimi Markets General Manager Bobby Rajendran said: “We have great opportunities in our fast-growing market and part of our expansion plan is to reach Riyadh in July, to launch a home delivery service in September, and then further expand the business to the western region of Saudi Arabia in the third quarter of 2020.”
Tamimi Markets E-commerce Manager Julie Samaha said all popular payment methods in Saudi Arabia will be available, including cash-on-delivery.
She said the platform is compatible with different web browsers and is available as iOS and Android apps.
“Our team will be working hard to keep up with new tech developments to meet the needs of the local market and exceed our clients’ expectations,” said Samaha.
Tamimi Markets is a Saudi company based in Alkhobar and is a subsidiary of the worldwide Tamimi Group headquartered in Dammam.

Ras Al-Khaimah to host Mideast’s first ‘business Oscars’

The Stevie Awards, known widely as the “business Oscars,” has reached an agreement for a strategic partnership with Ras Al-Khaimah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RAK Chamber) for the first annual Middle East Stevie Awards to be held in Ras Al-Khaimah in February 2020.
The Middle East Stevie Awards will recognize innovation in the workplace from across 17 MENA countries and the awards program and gala prize-giving ceremony will be held in Ras Al-Khaimah for the first three years and at least every other year thereafter. The announcement was accompanied by a call from Stevie Awards for entries for the inaugural edition.
“Hosting the inaugural edition of the Middle East Stevie Awards here in Ras Al-Khaimah is a significant accomplishment, and another noteworthy milestone to add to the emirate’s successful track record, continuing on the same path of progress that has been taking place across all sectors, in line with the directives of our wise leadership,” said Mohamed Ali Al-Nuaimi, chairman of RAK Chamber.
“I was extremely gratified when the RAK Chamber approached us about partnering with them on a new Stevie Awards program for the Middle East and North Africa,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and executive chairman of the Stevie Awards. “We have recognized the achievements of executives, entrepreneurs, and organizations across the region for many years in our other programs. The time is right for the region to have its own Stevie’s program. We are excited to launch the Middle East Stevie Awards, and look forward to the first gathering of Stevie Award winners in the program in Ras Al-Khaimah in February.”
