Manama: Deputy Prime Minister of Bahrain, Sheikh Khalid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, inaugurated the new venture by LuLu group ‘LuLu Express Fresh Market’ in Danaat Al Lawzi in Hamad Town in Bahrain. Chairman and Managing Director of LuLu Group M A Yusuff Ali, Industry, Commerce and Tourism Minister Zayed bin Rashid Al Zayani, Housing Minister Basem bin Yacoub Al Hamer, Ambassador of India to Bahrain Piyush Srivastava, and other dignitaries were present during the inauguration ceremony.
M A Yusuff Ali said that the new venture shows Lulu group’s commitment towards Bahrain’s development. He said that more such stores will be opened in the future. Yusuff Ali also inaugurated the ‘LuLu Cares’ project which goes hand in hand with the activities of the Royal Humanitarian Foundation (RHF). Those purchasing through LuLu can contribute towards this fund through this project. The fund thus collected will be utilised by RHF for the betterment of orphans.
The speciality of the newly-opened Fresh Market is that it is completely run by women. The market has bakery products, fruits, vegetables and other food products. The market sells both branded, imported products and regional products. The shop that is adjacent to residential areas also ensures a great shopping experience. The self-checkout facility helps people complete their purchases without standing in queues. Customers can scan the barcode on products and make payments through cards. The first Fresh Market was opened in Saudi Arabia. The second showroom has now opened in Bahrain. This is the 10th outlet of LuLu in Bahrain.
