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.
