The Al Ain outlet of SouqExtra!, involving an investment of Dh40 million, will be ready for commercial operations in September 2009, announced Saleh Lootah, Founding and Managing Director of SouqExtra.

"Our foray into Al Ain is in tune with our strategy of opening countrywide outlets in the UAE," said Lootah. "Our plan is to cover all the emirates, and then expand into other Gulf countries, where a number of potential partners are negotiating with us."

"Al Ain, with its large concentration of Emiratis, will have facilities and amenities customized to this segment, because SouqExtra is all about family bonds and community interaction," added Lootah.

"We have selected the location after great thought and we want to give Al Ain residents a totally different shopping and leisure experience."
