Spinneys, the leading premium fresh food retailer, has opened its first store in Saudi Arabia, located in the vibrant new mixed-use development La Strada Yard in the popular and affluent An Nuzha district of Riyadh.

La Strada Yard is an emerging hub for residential and commercial activities, making it an ideal location for Spinneys’ first-ever opening in the Kingdom.

The new 43,520 sq.ft. store offers a comprehensive range of premium products, including imported goods, locally sourced items, and branded and private label products.

The La Strada store will feature an extensive selection of bakery, meats, and meal solutions that are all produced on-site, with in-house production capability critical to Spinneys’ commitment to the freshness and quality that it is known for in the UAE and Oman.

“We are delighted to be launching our unique premium offering in Saudi Arabia, a rapidly growing market with a diverse consumer base and a keen appetite for fresh, high-quality products. Our entry into Saudi Arabia, a historic moment for a homegrown UAE brand, is driven by strong demand and positive market fundamentals, bolstered by the transformative Saudi Vision 2030, which has created an ideal environment for retail sector growth. Our track record in the GCC, coupled with best-in-class insights and partnerships in the Kingdom, give us a robust platform and we look forward to becoming a trusted name in the market.”

By establishing local production capabilities in Saudi Arabia, Spinneys aims to drive economies of scale, a key component of its fresh food proposition and margin profile. The production facilities at La Strada will also serve other Spinneys stores scheduled to open in Riyadh this year.

Spinneys has a well-advanced store pipeline, with further openings planned in Riyadh and Jeddah, the Kingdom’s most affluent and populous cities. The Company expects to open up to 12 new stores in Saudi Arabia by 2028, as per the statement.
