GMG, a global retailer, distributor, and manufacturer of brands across the sport, food, and health sectors, has opened the UAE’s first Monoprix store in Dubai.
Located in Gardenia Residence in the golf community of Dubai Hills, the new Monoprix store spans 950 square meters and offers more than 12,000 goods, including food products and a range of home and beauty products. The store will also offer Monoprix food and non-food products.
Founded in 1932, Monoprix is a French brand offering food retailing along with household essentials, perfumes, gift items, organic products, and restaurants.
GMG acquired the Middle East operations of the French retailing giant Groupe Casino’s brands – Géant, Franprix, and Monoprix – in April 2022 from Urban Foods by Dubai Holding.
Over the next 12-18 months, GMG will continue expanding the Monoprix and Franprix brands across the Middle East.
The retailer has introduced more than 120 brands into its markets across the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia. These include home-grown brands such as Sun and Sand Sports, Farm Fresh, Supercare Pharmacy, and Klassic, as well as international brands like Nike, Columbia, Under Armor, Timberland, Vans, Mama Sita’s, and McCain.
