MMI OPENS FIFTIETH STORE IN THE ARABIAN PENINSULA

Milestone comes at a significant year for the company as it marks 100 years of trading in Dubai

October 2016. MMI has opened its 50th store in the Arabian Peninsula – MMI Armada in Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT), Dubai.

The 50-store milestone comes at a significant time for the company as it celebrates 100 years of trading, and underlines MMI’s commitment to providing convenient and local solutions to shoppers. Mike Glen, Head of MMI UAE, said, “Our goal is to go where our customers want us to be. We’re focused on providing convenient locations in local neighbourhoods where they can find brands that they know and love. Our customer base is broad, which is reflected in the wide selection of products you will find in our new store and all those across our portfolio, as well as the range of price points.”

 As the UAE expat population and residential areas continue to grow, consumers are increasingly looking for the ease of shopping locally. The growth of the convenience sector reflects this as it’s currently experiencing the fastest growth in grocery retail.

He continued: “In order to meet the needs of our new and existing customer base, we continue to broaden our reach with new locations,” added Glen. “MMI Armada JLT marks our 50th store across the Arabian Peninsula, and we have more planned in the near future, which we will announce in due course.”

MMI’s celebration of its centennial year in Dubai is a remarkable milestone from the company that has grown from a humble Dubai Creekside shipping agent to one of the world’s leading independent beverage distributors. The MMI Armada JLT store opening is another important step on this journey and follows a steady increase in outlets across Dubai since opening its first shop in the 1960s.

MMI’s portfolio of 16 stores across the emirate includes locations such as the Mall of Emirates, Ibn Battuta Mall, Dubai Festival City, Deira, Al Wasl and dnata Business Bay. It also has stores in Ras al Khaimah, Abu Dhabi and Oman. MMI’s retail portfolio also includes Al Hamra Cellar in Ras Al Khaimah, which is less than an hour away from Dubai and offers an order-and-collect service at www.alhamracellar.com. Also in MMI’s portfolio is luxury drinks store Le Clos, with six locations in Terminals 1 & 3 at Dubai Airport, and an online store, www.leclos.net customers can order ahead online and have it delivered it them when they land in Dubai.
