LuLu chairman hails Saudi reforms at FII 2019

One of the region’s top retailers, LuLu Group, a strategic partner of Future Investment Initiative (FII) 2019, has unveiled its future plans for the Kingdom at the annual forum in Riyadh. Speaking at the session “The Sky’s the Limit: How will Infrastructure Investments Reinvent Communities and Turbocharge the Global Economy?” LuLu Group Chairman and Managing Director Yusuff Ali M.A. hailed the innovative and farsighted vision of the Saudi leadership.
He said the various initiatives both in the economic as well as socio-cultural sectors being initiated by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman are yielding the right results. “Saudi Arabia is fast becoming the economic and investment hub of the region and entire world is looking at Saudi Arabia in a whole new perceptive,” he said.
LuLu Group, which has 38 hypermarkets, supermarkets and shopping malls across the Kingdom, is looking to expand its footprint in Saudi Arabia with 10 more hypermarkets and supermarkets in different regions of the country.
Lulu will soon be launching a next-gen online shopping app, which will offer highest quality products at competitive prices, coupled with the convenience of shopping from the comfort of the home.

LuLu to fly 12 students from Kingdom to NASA

LuLu, the largest hypermarket chain in the Middle East, awarded a total of 12 young students of different nationalities from Saudi Arabia, India, Philippines, and Egypt, a chance to visit the NASA center in the US.
LuLu’s back-to-school promotion called “Fly to NASA” was held in partnership with Almarai. The hypermarket hosted a competition last September in search of students who are science and space knowledge enthusiasts to experience and visit the NASA center in Huntsville, Alabama.
Shehim Mohammed, LuLu Hypermarket director of Saudi Arabia, said: “We are glad to finally announce the winners of this innovative campaign, which is a first and the most unique among our activations over the years of operating in the region. Thank you to our partner Almarai for joining hands with us in this exciting promotion. This is the first time that LuLu will lead a great opportunity to children who have the high potential to grow and learn more while having fun through science.”
Winners include: Abrez Hussain, Mohammed Ahmed, Rayyan Abdul Aziz, Naif Saad Altwaim, Osama Al-Harbi, Hugh Matthew, Khalid Abdul Aziz, Munther Mohammed Qasim Abujazar, Ahmad Gahwagy, Ahmed Khalaf, Hamza Ladha and Asif Rijo.
“Fly to NASA” winners will get to enjoy and experience a one-week trip, which will include five days of fun and learning at NASA’s Space Camp. The selection process involved two phases — first was the preliminary online registration, while the final stage featured a live quiz to obtain the top 12 winners. Students aged 9 to 18 years were encouraged to register and join the online activation.
With 185 stores operating worldwide, LuLu is the fastest growing retail chain across 10 countries, which include the GCC, India, Egypt, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Founded in the early 1990s, it has successfully expanded to different parts of the world, garnering more than 1,600,000 shopping patrons everyday.
