The move was announced following a meeting with all major cooperative stores in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
According to a report in Emarat Al Youm, Hashim Al Nuaimi, director of the Ministry of Economy’s Competitiveness and Consumer Protection Department, confirmed that the stores in the capital had agreed to implement sales of between 50 percent and 90 percent.
He added that the ministry has started the preparations for Ramadan early, emphasising that the discounts will be implemented in all store branches in order to reach the maximum number of customers.
