Oncost to open its largest store in Kuwait this Wednesday

Monday, September 16, 2019

Kuwait’s leading family grocer, Oncost, will open its largest store in Kuwait at Al-Qurain on Wednesday September 18th, 2019. This will be the group's 21st store in Kuwait and its first in Mubarak Al-Kabir governorate.

The inaugural ceremony will be held under the patronage of His Excellency Mr. Mahmoud Boushehri, the group informed.

The newest store of Oncost will also be its largest venue, with more than 4,000sqm of retail space, providing a wide range of retail products for individuals, families and businesses at wholesale prices.

Oncost, which has consistently focused on satisfying the needs of its diverse customer base in the country, now hopes to bring its unique model of retailing to shoppers and businesses in and around Al-Qurain from September.

Mr. Saleh Al-Tunaib, Oncost’s Chief Executive Officer, expressed his thanks to Oncost’s loyal customers for their support to the brand over the years, and added, “By opening our 21st store, we will be taking a major step towards our main objective, which is to become the leading grocery retailer in the country with a presence in all governorates of Kuwait. We believe that Oncost would thrive in a market like Qurain because of the strong presence of large family households, restaurants, catering companies and retail offices. Furthermore, our aim is to enroll all our new customers in the Oncost Family Program, which would grant them access to many valuable benefits and exclusive savings on their grocery needs.”

“What makes us stand out from other central markets in Kuwait is our focus on wholesale shopping in a retail environment for a carefully selected assortment of quality products, while providing those products at the best, fair and competitive prices in the market,” said the CEO.

Speaking about the impending opening of their new outlet in Aswaq Al-Qurain, Oncost’s Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Remesh TA said, “With the opening of our 21st branch in Kuwait, we are on track to achieve our aggressive target of opening 35 branches across the country over the next five years.”

Oncost has built on its strength of providing a shopping experience that is fully customer-oriented and pivots around offering shoppers with wholesale prices in a retail environment. The company focuses on satisfying the food and beverage needs of shoppers while also providing them with a pleasant and enjoyable shopping.

The opening of a new Oncost outlet in Aswaq Al-Qurain will also prove a boon to restaurants and cafes in the surrounding areas, as the company’s food services division will provide them with a one-stop shop supply chain management for all their food and non-food needs.

Oncost is also confident that the new store will help enhance the Oncost Family Program, which offers up to 4 percent cashback rewards. Currently, the program has more than 100,000 members who enjoy the many benefits and privileges offered by Oncost and its affiliates program, which includes exclusive discounts from Careem, Red Tag, Twenty4, National Exchange Company, and Shifa Al-Jazeera Hospital.
