Times of Oman - - ROUND-UP -

MUS­CAT: Ma­jid Al Fut­taim, the lead­ing shop­ping mall, com­mu­ni­ties, re­tail and leisure pi­o­neer across the Mid­dle East, Africa and Asia, has an­nounced to­day its em­i­nent plan to open four new Car­refour out­lets in the Sul­tanate of Oman by early 2019.

With a to­tal ad­di­tional sell­ing area of more than 160,000 square feet, Car­refour will con­tinue to de­liver its be­spoke shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence and cus­tomer ser­vice of­fer­ing.

The ex­pan­sion plan in­cludes two new hy­per­mar­kets, one in Al Araimi Boule­vard and one in City Cen­tre Suhar, and two Car­refour Mar­kets in Al­manuma and in Suhar’s China Down­town.

Car­refour Mar­ket in­tro­duces the first su­per­mar­ket for­mat for Car­refour in the Sul­tanate of Oman. The store mainly fo­cuses on a wide range of fresh foods and food items, rather than non-food prod­ucts. Car­refour Mar­kets are lo­cated closer to res­i­den­tial com­mu­ni­ties to cater to cus­tomers’ ev­ery­day shop­ping needs.

Na­jib Had­dad, Coun­try Man­ager of Car­refour Oman at Ma­jid Al Fut­taim Re­tail said: “We are ex­cited to an­nounce our ex­pan­sion in Oman with the open­ing of four new stores by early 2019. This en­ables us to cater to a wider cus­tomer base across the Sul­tanate and con­tinue to de­liver an un­ri­valled shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence in line with con­sumers’ evolv­ing life­style pref­er­ences.”

He added: “We can ob­serve a pe­riod of trans­for­ma­tion within the Omani re­tail mar­ket, where cus­tomers are be­com­ing more con­ve­nience ori­ented. Hence, our strat­egy for launch­ing su­per­mar­kets in Oman is cen­tred around our con­ve­nience of­fer­ing in line with our ef­forts to cre­ate great mo­ments for ev­ery­one, ev­ery­day. Our two new hy­per­mar­kets in City Cen­tre Suhar and Al Araimi Boule­vard will of­fer a wide se­lec­tion of high qual­ity food and non-food items at the best value for money re­flect­ing on our en­deav­our to be­come a mar­ket leader in cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion and ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Car­refour, which en­tered the Omani mar­ket in 2001, cur­rently op­er­ates 8 hy­per­mar­kets, three are lo­cated in Mus­cat and one each in Nizwa, Sur, So­har, and Salalah. With the ad­di­tional four stores Car­refour will op­er­ate a to­tal of 12 stores across the Sul­tanate of Oman.
