Géant opens supermarket in Sharjah’s Kalba


Géant has opened its first supermarket in the city of Kalba, which is part of the emirate of Sharjah, the company said on Tuesday.

Located in the Kalba Waterfront Mall, the store will provide a local fresh produce range, a large fresh food section and a live grilled fishery section serving cooked food for order and pick up.

A Géant Express store has also opened in Jumeirah 1 at Port de le Mer.

Home delivery will also be available in the vicinity of both stores via local delivery platforms.

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

There are currently sixteen Géant supermarkets across UAE.

Marc Laurent, president for retail everyday goods at GMG, said: “Our stores, be it supermarkets, hypermarkets or the more compact Express concept, continue to thrive and act as true hubs of the community. We make a conscious effort to understand the specific needs of the distinct audiences we serve to create a convenient shopping experience, tailored to the communities.”
