Kuwait, November 30, 2008
Leading French hypermarket Géant will open its first anchor store in Kuwait at 360° Kuwait Shopping Center, the country’s latest innovative real estate development, which is set to open in the spring of 2009.
The massive 13,000 sqm Géant hypermarket, part of Fu-com Central Markets Co. KSC, will attain a pioneering position within Kuwait’s retail industry in terms of exposure, diversity and quality of products, said a statement.
It will deliver a vast range of international service standards consolidated under one roof which will cater to the ever-increasing cosmopolitan environment, lifestyles and tastes of Kuwaiti society. It is worth noting that Géant’s parent company owns more than 9,000 locations, including Géant Hypermarket, supermarkets and convenience stores, spread around the world.
“Géant is a bright addition to our portfolio of shopping centers and we are extremely pleased to have played a pivotal role in bringing the French hypermarket Géant to Kuwait. Though the concept of hypermarkets is new to the Kuwaiti market, we are confident that Géant will win the trust of local consumers, given their successful experiences in the GCC in affecting overall consumer habits and the demands of the shopping public,” stated Marzooq Al-Marzooq, chairman of Tamdeen Shopping Centers.
“Since Kuwait is known for its growth in retail sectors, we are confident that we will play a dominant role within the industry, offering world class products and services that cater to the different particular needs of Kuwaiti society that includes families as well other individuals, whether professional or private,” added Mazher Papar, vice chairman of Fu-com Central Markets Co.
