Jumbo has invested more than AED 10 million in a premium retail store, a regional office, warehouse facilities and a service centre in Abu Dhabi that will together deliver the best customer experience in the Emirate.
The 20,000 sq. ft fully-digital store, which is the newest technology destination in Abu Dhabi, was officially inaugurated by His Excellency Ghanem Al Fandi Al Mazroui, Executive Director of the Department of International Economic Relations, Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (DED), and Mr. Ali Fahad Al Nuaimi, Director of Commercial Relations, Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (DED), in the presence of Jumbo Group’s and The Galleria Mall’s leadership team. This is Jumbo’s 15th retail store in the UAE & the 6th in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Following the inauguration, His Excellency Al Mazroui emphasised the DED’s desire to attract more investments in the capital’s business and retail sectors by providing the necessary support to stimulate investors to expand in the Emirate.
He stated that DED’s Abu Dhabi Business Centre has launched a series of initiatives to support businesses in the capital as well as facilitate all transactions in relation to business licensing services such as immediate license, dual license, technological license and automatic renewal of licenses. These licenses come within the framework of the Abu Dhabi Accelerated Development Programme Ghadan 21 to enhance the competitiveness of doing business in the Emirate.
