Within a relatively short time span of 2 years after the inception of their first
store, the Al Maya Group opened shutters to 18 more branches. Keeping convenience
as a main focus, the Group’s flagship supermarkets included free home delivery and
24-hour service which at the time, was not provided by any other retailer.
As the supermarket business continued to flourish, fresh ideas were born in the
minds of the management. Thus the Central Warehouse Distribution depot under the
auspices of the Al Maya Trading Group was established in 1991. The product profile
featured several leading brands in ice-cream, frozen food, beverages, dry goods
and DPH, from all over the UAE. Using modern warehouse management systems, streamlined
logistics and a professional, dedicated and highly experienced staff, the Al Maya
Group has established itself as the industry leader in reliability and efficiency.
Today, with the support of over 30 self-owned supermarkets in prime locations, a
fleet of over 300 vehicles, and a state-of-the-art distribution facility that covers
over a million square feet, the Al Maya Group’s enterprises enjoy over 97% market
coverage, ranging from small groceries to large hypermarkets.
