Regional retailer LuLu has further strengthened its presence in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia with the opening of its new express store in the heart of Dammam, located at Jalawiya Plaza. The LuLu Express outlet is the retailer’s 22nd branch across the region, increasing the group’s store count to 211 in total around the world. Set within the vast and growing community, the new store, covering a total built-up area of 43,000 square feet, features a one-stop shopping destination for fresh food, groceries, home essentials and electronics.
Shehim Mohammed, director of LuLu Hypermarket Saudi Arabia, said: “We continue to see the improving lifestyle preferences and shopping demands of residents in communities located farther from town centers, which is why it is our continuous endeavor to take convenient shopping options near to people, so that residents don’t have to travel far. As part of our growth plans in the Eastern Province, four more stores are lined up to be launched by the end of 2021. Our e-commerce operations simultaneously expand with increased fleets to cater to online shoppers.”
The new express store is home to a wide variety of globally sourced products, such as food and lifestyle essentials, from groceries to fresh food, health and beauty products, home needs, electronics, and much more. Its product range is backed up by the group’s own food sourcing and manufacturing facilities across 22 countries, which ensures well-stocked warehouses and an uninterrupted food supply at the most affordable prices. LuLu has also kicked off inaugural offers with great discounts and bundle deals on various product categories.
In times of recent pandemic-induced lockdowns, LuLu played a crucial role and ensured uninterrupted supply of food and non-food products while maintaining the highest standards of hygiene, health and safety of both its customers and employees.
The UAE-based LuLu Group is the only Middle East retail group to be featured in Deloitte’s annual “Global Powers of Retailing 2021” survey for the MENA and Asian regions.
