LuLu opens new Abu Dhabi outlet
The UAE’s LuLu Group has launched its latest state-of-the-art hypermarket at Khalifa City in Abu Dhabi, increasing its total store count to 195 globally.
Located in Forsan Central Mall, the 160,000 sqft location was inaugurated by Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa, chairman of the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development and member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, in the presence of Saeed Al Bahri Salem Al Ameri, director-general of the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority; Yusuff Ali MA, chairman and managing director of Lulu Group; and other dignitaries.
Yusuff Ali said: “This hypermarket introduces a newly-improved design and space... it has always been our policy to make the LuLu brand easily accessible to shoppers in suburbs and outskirts areas, so they do not need to drive a long distance.”
“The challenges of Covid-19 are there, but I have full faith and confidence in the visionary leadership of this great country. It is the duty of all business organisations to continue their expansion plans and growth activities. This will help the economy recover faster, in order for us to get back to our normal life sooner,” he added.
Abu Dhabi-based Lulu has announced that it is marching ahead with its expansion plans despite the challenges faced due to the Covid-19 pandemic across the world.
It has opened seven hypermarkets in different regions between June to October this year, along with a dedicated fulfillment centre in Abu Dhabi for its e-commerce operations. In the UAE alone, more than 20 hypermarkets are lined up to be opened in the coming years.
