Qatar's third AlMeera store in expansion plan
Al Meera Consumer Goods Company (QSC) has opened the third shopping centre, which forms part of its 14-store expansion plan
Al Meera Consumer Goods Company (QSC) is moving towards fulfilling its 14-branch strategy, with the opening of the third shopping centre.
To meet the Qatari government’s call to develop for the real-estate areas outside Doha, Al Meera Consumer Goods Company (QSC) opened its newest branch in Umm Salal Ali.
This event marks the launch of the third shopping centre in the company’s previously announced 14-store expansion plan, QIB reported.
The launch of the shopping centre brings Al Meera to one more of the country’s underserved regions – and forms as part of the company’s mission to provide for consumers in every area of the country.
During the inauguration of the branch HE Sheikh Thani Bin Thamer Al Thani, Al Meera’s chairman of the Board of Directors, commented on the company’s achievement, in the presence of a number of Al Meera Senior Staff, noting: “We are truly pleased to introduce Umm Salal Ali’s residents with the answer to their shopping needs and to play a significant role in the real-estate development of the area, which has been highlighted in the State’s country-wide urbanisation plan.
“As with every new branch that Al Meera opens, the Umm Salal Ali branch is designed to exceed consumers’ expectations with a distinctive, integrated shopping experience that sets a benchmark for retail chains across the country.”
This is the third launch in Al Meera’s current five-store expansion phase in the country, after the opening of both the Bu Sidra and North Sailiya (Al Miarad) branches.
Two stores nearing completion are to be located in Al Wakra (West) and Leaibab 2.
In addition, six stores that began during the second half of 2016 and are currently under construction, include branches in Rawdat Aba El Heran, Azghawa, Leabaib and UmmQarn – and will be built on a land area of 10,805m², 6,311m², 17,390m² and 10,230m² respectively.
The branches in Al Khor and Sailiya are to be built on a land area of 15,000m² each, bringing the expansion plan to a total of 11 out of 14 branches, in line with Al Meera’s vision to provide consumers across the country with their shopping needs under one roof.
To serve the community’s diverse shopping needs under one roof, the 4,014m² Umm Salal Ali branch also includes nine shops, a restaurant area and small food court, a dedicated parking space and other facilities to enhance the customers’ experience.
HE Sheikh Thani Bin Thamer Al Thani added: “The launch of our new shopping centre also marks a significant progress in Al Meera’s expansion plan and further widens its reach to more regions in the country, especially ones where residents are underserved or receive lacklustre services.
“This is the perfect occasion to reaffirm our commitment to continue providing consumers with an unmatched shopping convenience and best-in-class services, as well as to advance our goals of contributing effectively to the achievement of the Qatar National Vision 2030.”
