UAE-based grocery retail company Grandiose has established its first hypermarket in Abu Dhabi, as part of its efforts to expand the business in the Emirates.
The new hypermarket is the chain’s largest and one of the first of its scale to offer customers a sustainable shopping experience, eco-friendly products, and a fresh new appearance, as well as improved customer services. It also promotes local produce and has dedicated sections that emphasize such goods.
HE Hassan Al Hammadi, Secretary-General of the UAE Boxing Federation and the Gulf Organizing Committee attended the event as well as senior representatives of other industries in the UAE.
Mr. Al Hammadi said, “The UAE government and administration is very keen on fostering entrepreneurship in the country. Its support, infrastructure, and logistics facilitation have transformed the country into a magnet for entrepreneurs and business owners. Mr. Ghassan Aboud’s success is the best proof of this.” Mr. Ghassan Aboud is the Chairman of Ghassan Aboud Group, which is the parent company of Grandiose Supermarkets.
“We are excited to launch the new hypermarket, this store is part of an ambitious development plan across the UAE. We aim to serve local communities with the freshest and broadest assortment of local and international produce, along with our organic and freeform range suiting all lifestyle and dietary requirements at great value prices. We also seek to be an employer of choice, supporting diversity and creating attractive career growth opportunities for many across all levels of the business.”
Founded in 2016, Grandiose is a concept store that provides local and international grocery and ready-to-eat products with an emphasis on health, freshness, and broad assortment including their lifestyle and dietary ranges.
Grandiose has a long-standing commitment to sustainability. It is the first supermarket chain to eliminate single-use plastic bags replacing them with free paper bags at checkout counters. It also uses non-plastic cutlery and trolleys made from recycled plastic waste from the ocean.
