On the occasion Yusuff Ali said, “LuLu’s growth story in Saudi Arabia is a testimony to the quality choices of Saudi shoppers who recognised the commitment of LuLu to deliver its brand promise of quality, affordability and variety.

We commit to provide world-class shopping and we shall continue meeting the lifestyle needs of our clientele base.

He further added that, “we have also focused on promoting and providing local employment opportunities which have been critical to our success through a structured recruitment process that aims to provide necessary training and skill enhancement opportunities to local work force”.

As part of our expansion plan in the Kingdom, “we will open another 17 more new hypermarkets in the near future, which will add more employment to the local youth.

“The onward march of LuLu Hypermarkets in Saudi Arabia signals our Group’s commitment to the Saudi leadership’s vision and energy for a bright future. Our growth would not have been possible without the support of all our stakeholders – especially our valued customers who have always patronized our quality and service and our management who have tapped retail trends and built network of stores on the foundation of excellence”.

“We are proud to be part of Saudi Arabia’s overall development and will continue to support sustainable development strategies. Thanks to the wise leadership” added Yusuffali.
