Urban Foods, a strategic partnership between Meraas and Dubai Holding, is expanding the footprint of its Géant brand with the opening of a hypermarket at Al Khawaneej Walk.
According to CEO Mark Anthony Lack, this new opening marks the 11th opening and first hypermarket in the city and fits into the brand’s robust expansion strategy of targeting up and coming residential and commercial communities.
“The success of food truck park Last Exit coupled with the rapid growth and development we have seen in the Al Khawaneej area including the opening of a world-class mall made our decision to open in this new and exciting neighborhood that much easier. Known globally as the grocer designed for urban living, Géant is certain to be well-received by the discerning residents who live and work in this area,” says Lack.
He added that this opening is especially significant as it is the first post-COVID Géant hypermarket to open in the UAE and has been specifically designed to incorporate all the necessary safety factors and function with due safe distancing protocols. The staff has also been specially trained to ensure that the shopping experience is the safest possible.
The new Géant features a comprehensive grab-and-go section, butchery and seafood market, and a French-style bakery. In addition to the food sections, there are special areas designated for fashionwear, shoes, electronics, sporting goods, household items, household accessories, health and beauty. The hypermarket will also offer home delivery via InstaShop and Géant’s Your store to Your door service.
