Dubai: Urban Foods, set up as an alliance between Meraas and Dubai Holding, is opening the first Geant hypermarket in Dubai, at the Al Khawaneej Walk – Last Exit.
“The success of food truck park - Last Exit - coupled with the rapid growth and development we have seen in the Al Khawaneej area, including the opening of a mall, made our decision to open in this neighborhood that much easier," said Mark Anthony Lack, CEO of Urban Foods. "Known globally as the grocer designed for urban living, Géant is certain to be well-received by the discerning residents who live and work in this area.”
