“We are going to reach up to 5,000 employees, as we are planning to open six new branches next year and some 10-12 the following year,” he added.
The newly inaugurated hypermarket, under the patronage of Sheikh Abdullah bin Mustahil bin Salim Shamas, Governor of South Al Sharqiyah, is the first outlet in Sur.

“We are thankful to the visionary leader His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said and the government of Oman for giving us all the help and support,” Yusuffali said.
He added that they are going to reach out to people in all the big and small cities of the Sultanate.
