DOHA, Eastern Province – Tamimi Markets, one of the fastest-growing supermarket chains in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, opened its 20th store in Doha, Eastern Province on Wednesday, September 25 with government officials, senior executives and special guests in attendance.
“Our Doha store customers will enjoy the same high standards of quality, freshness, variety, competitive prices and customer service established by my father when he opened the first Tamimi Markets in Al Khobar in 1979,” said Sheik Tariq bin Ali Al Abdullah Al-Tamimi, president of the Tamimi Group.
“Tamimi Markets has had a special relationship with the residents of Doha and Dhahran for 34 years now and we look forward to making that relationship even stronger and better with our newest store,” Sheik Tariq added.
