Tamimi Markets opens new store in Riyadh
Saudis comprise over 50 percent of the work force in Tamimi Markets across the Kingdom, says Mohsen S. Husain, CEO of Tamimi Markets.
He made this remark to Arab News during the opening ceremony of the company’s 22nd branch Kingdomwide and 13th in Riyadh, located on Qurtoba district on Khaled bin Alwaleed Street, Dammam Road. The new branch occupies an area of 4,000 square meters with all facilities.
Referring to the Saudi manpower, he said some of them are holding top jobs in the company as cashiers and other responsible positions. “I think ultimately it is our work culture that helps them succeed,” he said, adding: “We give them great benefits, good pay and treat them the right way. We also give training to Saudis and all other recruits.”
Speaking at the launch of its new branch opening, he said, it is at a strategic location in Riyadh, where many shopping complexes and villas are coming up. Tamimi Markets, according to him, is one of the fastest growing supermarket chains in Saudi Arabia named by Saudi shoppers as one of the Top 100 Saudi Brands in 2013.
“Our customers are talking about the Tamimi brand and quality. We thank our customers for their support, as it reflects their appreciation of our quality, great variety and competitive prices at our beautiful stores,” Husain said. He added: “We target all segments of our society. This store is for everyone, and we invite them to come here where promotion is being offered with products across the world, from the United States, the UK, Europe and Asia.” He said: “A combination of quality products at low prices along with promotional offers, we think, is being appreciated by our valued customers.”
The CEO observed that another factor behind their success was that they represent the only supermarket here serving the customers. Husain added: “Our vision is to be the best supermarket in the Kingdom, with a focus on customer service, quality, freshness, variety and everyday low prices.
Tamimi Markets is the supermarket of choice for many Saudis and expatriates. We also import foods, produce and household products from Asia, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, Holland, Lebanon, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines and South Africa.”
Tamimi Markets is a Saudi company based in Alkhobar and is a subsidiary of the worldwide Tamimi Group headquartered in Dammam. It currently operates more than 20 supermarkets in Riyadh, Al-Hassa, Alkhobar, Aqrabiah, Dammam, Doha, Jeddah and Jubail, with future plans to more than double their stores in Saudi Arabia by 2020.
