UAE-based pharmacy chain BinSina announced today it will open 15 new outlets across Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah, with the rollout having already started last month.
BinSina currently operates over 100 stores in shopping malls and communities in the UAE.
Some of the new branches will be located in West Zone Mizhar, Rimal Rotana and Amwaj Rotana in JBR, Manazil Al Khor, Avenue Mall in Motor City and The Springs community in Dubai.
The company’s expansion plans will continue throughout 2018 and will see new outlets added in United Square, New Al Khalidiya and Rawdat Alkhair in Abu Dhabi and Marina Gate, City Land Mall, IBN Battuta, and Zabeel in Dubai.
Others will include Kalba Mall and Al Zahiya City Centre in Sharjah, and Grove Village in Ras Al Khaimah.
The expansion plans come on the heels of the company’s launch of 10 new stores in 2017.
“In line with the UAE’s vision to offer world-class healthcare, we are also fully committed to offering convenience and excellence to consumers looking for quality health and beauty products,” said Saleema Shurrab, general manager of BinSina Pharmacy.
BinSina’s plans are in line with the UAE’s goal to position itself as a pharmaceutical hub by 2021.
The UAE’s drugs, skincare, healthy lifestyle, beauty, supplements and vitamins market value is expected to reach AED13b by 2020, and AED21b by 2025.
BinSina Pharmacy is fully owned by Al Khayyat Investments Group. It opened its first doors in Dubai in 1965.
