Jumbo Electronics Expands its Retail Operations in the UAE

Launch of the Group’s 2nd electronics store in RAK

Ras Al Khaimah, 09 September 2018: Leading OmniChannel electronics retailer in the region, Jumbo Electronics, has opened its second store in Ras Al Khaimah at Manar Mall, reflecting a strong demand for smart gadgets and technology products in the Emirate.

The store was unveiled in the presence of leading dignitaries in the Emirate, including Dr. Abdulrahman Al Shayeb Al Naqbi, Director General DED Ras Al Khaimah, Mohmmed Al Mahmoud , Acting Deputy Director General DED Ras Al Khaimah, representatives from Al Hamra Group, representatives from Al Manar Mall Management and senior management from Jumbo Group.
Abdul Rahman Al Shaib Al Naqbi, Director General of the Department of Economic Development in Ras Al Khaimah, expressed his delight at the new Jumbo store opening in the Emirate. Ras Al Khaimah is witnessing significant expansion in several sectors including tourism and manufacturing, both of which have given the economy a significant boost. Jumbo’s expansion in Ras Al Khaimah confirms that the destination is business-friendly and welcomes companies to set up or expand their operations here

Ras Al Khaimah has a growing population of young tech savvy customers who are well-informed of the latest technologies and are keen on getting their hands on the latest products. Ras Al Khaimah is also an important contributor to the UAE’s ever-growing economy – and an important market for Jumbo Electronics.

Arvind Agrawal, Head of Jumbo Group, said: “RAK is a focus market for us due to its growing importance as a tourist hub as well as the fact that it has a large local population. Our second store in RAK is designed to provide a superior experience with focus on smart and complex technology products that include smart home devices, latest streaming unwired products as well as the traditional gaming, TVs, laptops and mobiles for which Jumbo is well known. Jumbo will also offer a wide array of value added services such as Jumbo UnwiredCrew for Smart & connected Solutions as well as After Sales Service and Extended Warranty with Jumbo Salama.”

The store was launched with an array of exciting launch offers on all products across categories.

Benoy Kurien, Group Chief Executive Officer, Al Hamra, said: “Our focus has always been to create the very best shopping and entertainment attraction in Ras Al Khaimah. We are now able to attract the world’s leading brands, further expediting our company vision of being the largest and most visited mall in the Northern Emirates.

“As a leader in the electronics market in the region, Jumbo offers a myriad of goods and has proven reputation for delivering quality products and services, which I’m certain will be a huge hit with visitors and a welcome addition to our already diverse retail, F&B and entertainment offering in Manar Mall.”
The new Manar Mall store is the 14th Jumbo Electronics store in the UAE. As a trusted consumer electronics retailer in the region, Jumbo will offer several brand consultants and experienced salespersons on the shop floor who will offer customers valuable in-store advice on the best products to suit their needs.
