Dubai has always come up with innovative ideas to address problems that people might face in their everyday lives. Similarly, those living in faraway communities can now buy their essentials from the region’s first-ever grocery bus.
This service is launched by Carrefour, which has already established itself as one of the top global brands. The operations of this new venture are operated by Majid Al Futtaim in the UAE.
Mobimart has set its eyes on bringing convenient and accessible shopping to the doorsteps of various communities in Dubai, which are either far off from main areas or remain delivery-less.
According to the reports, Carrefour Mobimart will offer its customers a wide variety of daily groceries and fresh food. This will include:
- Organic produce
- Frozen food
- Light household items
The organisation informed that the bus will visit different communities on assigned routes, and will reach the checkpoints on its dedicated time.
Phillippe Peguilhan, Country Manager of Carrefour UAE, at Majid Al Futtaim Retail, said:
We’re constantly looking to find new ways to reinforce our position as the leading retailer in the region. This is what drives us to come up with unique concepts that reach our customers and satisfy their needs wherever they are. Carrefour Mobimart represents Majid Al Futtaim’s commitment to provide innovative, and seamless customer experiences to our shoppers, as we bring Carrefour to their doorsteps.
Jamal Wick, Managing Director and Co-Founder of the company said, “We commend Majid Al Futtaim for their efforts to always bring the best innovations by going over and above the brick and mortar stores’ expectations. Residents in the UAE have high expectations of personalised delivery services and Carrefour has successfully brought a grocery shopping experience to their doorsteps. We are also appreciative for their support to local SMEs through such initiatives, reflecting their efforts to contribute to the diversification of the economy.”
