The renowned French retail chain will boast more than 35,000 goods within its 7,000 sq m location, including several product lines that will be new and exclusive to Qatar from both local and international brands, a statement said.

It added that Qatar’s new store will include the widest range of organic, fresh items from local farmers while it will be home to an authentic French bakery, a waffle house and a "Cave à Fromage" which will be stocked with a wide selection of the finest international cheeses.

Sebastien Farhat, regional general manager of Monoprix said: “We are delighted to announce our newest and largest outlet and we want to tell the market to expect something very special from Monoprix, as we widen our footprint in Qatar.”

Trevor Hill, general manager of Doha Festival City Mall added: “We are confident that Monoprix’s excellent reputation in customer service and unique product lines, will complement our very carefully selected range of brands within Doha Festival City, as well as reinforcing our commitment to offering shoppers a world class experience.”
