Oncost, the leading family market in Kuwait, opened its 23rd branch in the country in AlQibla area in Kuwait City’s landmark Souk AlKabeer on 14 March. The outlet was inaugurated by Souq Alkabeer Property Management, Bader J. AlHajeri and Chief Operating Officer Remesh Anandadas, in the presence of a select gathering of guests, customers, well-wishers and media personnel.
The newest branch of Oncost is in the ‘Express Store’ format that is open from 8am to 11pm, and where you can find everything you need for daily household needs in a convenient small store. The store has a wide selection of fresh vegetables and fruits, including local produce, along with staple food items, a delicatessen with cheese and cold cuts, as well as organic foods and a variety of imported items.
Speaking on the occasion, AlHajeri said that since its inception Oncost has been focused on satisfying the needs of its diverse base of customers in the country. He added that the new store will continue this customer-centric outlook of the brand, by focusing on providing shoppers with a comfortable retail environment that offers a carefully curated selection of quality products available at fair and competitive prices.
For his part, Mr. Anandadas expressed his thanks to Oncost’s loyal customers for their continued support and encouragement to the brand over the years. He added, “In opening our 23rd store in Kuwait City we hope to cater to the large group of office-goers in the city who often do not find the time, or are too tired after a busy day in the office to visit other shopping venues. Our location in the heart of Kuwait City, in close proximity to most offices and easy access from all sides, will enable office goers to buy all their daily needs quickly from the wide selection of items and fresh produce we offer at this new store.”
The opening of their new branch in the Capital Governorate confirms that the slowdown in economic activity witnessed in Kuwait during the two-year pandemic period, has not dented the ambitious objective of Oncost to become the leading grocery retailer in the country with a presence in all governorates of Kuwait.
