This move will ensure that people who commute by metro will have the goods they need as they head to their various destinations and be a reliable partner in every individual’s journey.
With these two new stores to be opened at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC) and Musheireb station, 'MAAR” will offer the best of Al Meera’s diverse product range at competitive prices, whereby commuters will be able to experience a new level of convenience for on-the-go shopping.
Commuters can choose from the brand’s ready-to-eat range, which includes a variety of snacks and sandwiches. With quality and freshness at the core of Al Meera’s brand values, there is also an array of everyday essential goods. For those on an around the clock schedule, “MAAR” offers daily commuters an array of convenience goods to ensure all commuters have what they need, while on the move.
On this launch, Eng. Salah Al Hammadi, Al Meera’s Deputy CEO said, “The opening of our convenient stores at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC) and Musheireb station marks an important milestone towards strengthening partnership between Al Meera and Qatar Rail. “MAAR” aims to bring metro commuters the ease and convenience of quick purchases to save them time and meet their needs, while on the go.
As the demand for convenient retail experiences increases, and the number of residents and communities in Qatar continues to grow, we always look for new ways to adapt our offering. In line with this, partnering with Qatar Rail allows us to reach a new shopper segment through our neighboring convenience store concept and bring our unique offering and great moments to an even wider customer base.”
On their part, Mr. Ajlan Eid Al Enazi, Chief of Strategies and Business Development at Qatar Rail, said, “We are pleased to see Al Meera opening its mini market at the metro stations as it is significant step in the integration of Qatar Rail’s services.
