Lulu International Group says it will open a new 70,000 sq ft hypermarket at Hili Mall in September
Hili Mall, a new shopping mall project in Al Ain, has announced a deal with retail giant Lulu International Group to open a new 70,000 square feet hypermarket in September.
The new mall, which is set to open later this month, is targeting 175,000 visitors per week by the end of this year.
The new hypermarket is expected to drive a large segment of Al Ain population to the Mall, especially from the Hili district and its neighbourhood, a statement said.
"We are delighted to seal this partnership; and are confident that the new hypermarket alongside internationally-acclaimed retail groups such as Al Shaya, Landmark, Kamal Osman Jamjoom, and other renowned brands will be a focal destination which will be attracting more visitors to the mall," said Saeed Sultan Al Dhaheri, CEO of Hili Mall.
"Our presence in Hili Mall demonstrates our commitment to be having a presence in all major retail landmarks across the UAE," added Yusuffali MA, chairman of Lulu Group.
Al Dhaheri previously said that August 28 has been set as the opening date for the mall which will feature a total of 160 stores and is located next to the five-star Hili Rayhaan by Rotana hotel.
This article looks a bit of confusing. Hili Mall is an existing mall and not a new mall.
There used to be Geant Supermarket earlier, it looks as if Lulu Hypermarket will be replacing Geant Supermarket as a tenant in Hili Mall.
Note to staff writer ' internationally-acclaimed retail groups such as Al Shaya, Landmark, Kamal Osman Jamjoom' ...with the exception of Landmark which has a outlets in India and China and Egypt none of the other stores mentioned are 'internationally acclaimed'. I would say if you've got stores in Sydney, Paris, Frankfurt, New York, London and Beijing then you're on your way to being internationally acclaimed.
