We’re elated to extend our branch to Al Badaa and hope that we see a never-ending bunch of happy families, individuals and residents in our branch.”

Unlike a traditional launch, Aswaaq celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony by Chairman and Aswaaq board member Mr. Khalifa Al Dabbous. Decorated with giant helium balloons at the roof of the building, the branch instantly drew attraction from the public and created a buzz. A big balloon arch was created inside the mall.

Families, residents and individuals were greeted by the staff and were gifted a goody bag, full of products and gifts for customers in the neighborhoods. The opening event included food samples from different suppliers and gave the visitors a taste of their new retail chain.

Kids participated in various workshops, face painting, balloon twisting and the bouncing castle. Apart from the happy crowd, kids also spectated clowns, iconic cartoon characters and got their hands-on some popcorn and candy.

Visitors were introduced to ‘Wafa’, Aswaaq’s loyalty program and were offered discounts at different sections in the supermarket.

The new community mall at Al Badaa is set to become the next destination for communities with a dynamic shopping experience with a warm, friendly and a home-like environment.
