Jumbo Electronics, the UAE-based consumer electronics giant, has opened its latest store in the Marina Mall, Abu Dhabi.
The 4,500 sq ft store is the first of two outlets the company will open in UAE capital this year as part of its expansion plans in the Emirate.
“Abu Dhabi is a key focus market for us,” said Deepak Khetrapal, CEO, Jumbo Electronics.
“We currently have six stores in the Capital, including this new outlet in Marina Mall, and will be opening an additional Abu Dhabi store later this year. As Emirate has grown, we have seen an increased number of visitors in our stores and therefore have plans on expanding our network to meet that demand.”
“Our growth is a result of our commitment to offering the best-in-class value proposition for discerning customers and market-leading customer-service, backed by accessible and popular locations - such as the Marina Mall. We are delighted that Sony is here with us for the opening since they have been our key partner since the inception of Jumbo,” he added.
Kiyoshi Shikano, senior vice president, global sales & marketing head of Sony Corporation, who was the chief guest at the opening ceremony, said: “We share a great relationship with Jumbo, which has been our exclusive distributor in the UAE for nearly 40 years.”
“We are pleased to be a part of the opening of the Marina Mall store. Abu Dhabi is a fast growing market and the expansion plans Jumbo has in place in the capital will give us more platforms to showcase and launch an amazing array of products we have lined up for this year,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
