Largest consumer cooperative in the UAE, Union Coop has launched a new drive-thru shopping service that enables consumers to buy from their vehicles, at the Mirdif branch in Etihad Mall.

Khalid Humaid Bin Diban Al Falasi,
CEO – Union Coop

“Union Coop decided to implement this exceptional and new idea that contributes to increasing options for shopping methods for the community members and consumers. We offer tradition shopping service in the showrooms, the shopper valet service, online shopping in addition to shopping from the vehicle in Mirdif branch.”

The new service extends to more than 130 basic food and non-food products.

Mr. Al Falasi pointed out: “The consumer, in his private car, enters the designated area in the parking of Etihad Mall, and is served by service staff without the need to get out of his vehicle. Payments can be made in various ways such as cash, debit/credit cards and Al Afdhal card.” Consumers can use their Tamayaz card to earn and redeem loyalty points as well, in addition to adding the shareholder numbers to the purchases.

The working hours of the drive-thru shopping are the same as that of the Mirdif branch.
