Waitrose opens new store in Dubai
Waitrose has opened a new convenience shop in Dubai as part of its ongoing partnership with Fine Fare Food Market.
The store is the retailer’s sixth in Dubai and its twelfth in the United Arab Emirates.
Spanning 4,000 square feet, the shop is situated in Al Barari in the heart of an active eco-conscious residential development. It will offer products from the retailer’s Essential Waitrose and Waitrose No.1 ranges in the categories of fresh fruit and vegetables, freshly baked bread and food to go. The store will also have a vegan section selling quick and easy ready meals and staple vegan items.
The store employs 16 people and will be run by Fine Fare Food Market with support from Waitrose in the UK. It will open seven days a week from 7am to 11pm.
Barry Delehanty, head of commercial sales at Waitrose, said: “We are continuing to see increasing demand for Waitrose and its food products in the UAE and worldwide and so delighted to be working with our partners in Fine Fare Foods Limited to open this store in Al Barari. We are proud that our brand appeals to so many customers in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.”
