Géant opens two stores in UAE


French supermarket chain Géant is expanding in the UAE, with two new Géant Express stores opened in Dubai’s Marina Quays and Nshama Town Square this week.

A statement said that home delivery will also be available in the vicinity of both stores via local delivery platforms.

The new stores are part of Géant’s ‘Express’ concept which will allow the retailer to open shop in smaller neighbourhoods.

Marc Laurent, president, retail – consumer goods at GMG said that “By keeping communities and customers at the heart of everything we do, we’ve been able to create a model that provides convenience and easy access to our shoppers. From their contemporary layout to the unrivalled variety of fresh selection of food items and competitive prices, to our customer-friendly and knowledgeable staff, our Géant Express stores promise and deliver nothing but exceptional quality.”

Géant is a chain of supermarkets and hypermarkets that are part of the French retailing giant Groupe Casino, with a turnover of more than 30 billion euros. In the UAE, the company is part of GMG’s consumer goods division.

There are currently ten Géant Express convenient stores across Dubai and a recently launched Géant Hypermarket at Dubai Hills Mall and Al Khawaneej Walk. In addition, Géant continues its partnership with ADNOC to strategically place Géant Express stores within their portfolio of petrol forecourts.
