LuLu Hypermarket has announced the opening of its fourth outlet in Saudi Arabia in the capital, Riyadh. Located in the Ibn Sulaiman Commercial Centre, the new 200,000 sq ft hypermarket is the 103rd for the Abu Dhabi-based LuLu Group. "Our plans for Saudi are quite ambitious and the premise for this is the stable political climate," said LuLu Group managing director MA Yusuffali. "In Saudi, our plans are to bring more and more world-class shopping centres to different regions of country and give customers the feel of the world-class shopping experience at close proximity rather than making them drive long distances," he said.
