Mohammad Badri, Director, EROS Group, on how the brand has become a preferred retailer for Indians to send premium products to their loved ones

We would like to congratulate India and the Indian expats in the UAE on celebrating their 76th Indian Independence Day. Indians form approximately 40 per cent of the UAE’s total population and are an established community and an integral part of the workforce, that has contributed to the country’s success. The UAE has truly become a ‘home away from home’ for over 3.42 million Indian expats that work and live here. It has also become a hub for several Indians who have a flourishing business here. This is because of India-UAE bilateral relationships that have grown from strength to strength every year. This long-standing relationship between the two nations indicates that the collaboration is built on deep growing cultural understanding.

The UAE is also seen as a hotspot for Indian expats and tourists, who visit the country to shop for some of their favourite brands. The UAE is a retail hub with well-known power brands — combined with lower taxes and best currency exchange rate, making it the most suitable shopping destination for Indian expats or tourists.

As a Group, we share a special bond with our Indian customers, who have been part of our retail journey for over 54 glorious years. EROS has become a preferred and trusted omni-channel electronics retailer, for our customers who love to shop for premium products and avail best deals to send to their loved ones back home.

EROS offers a seamless and convenient omni-channel experience to customers with 15 stores across the UAE and online. We are an award-winning brand best-known to offer a wide portfolio of the latest consumer electronics, including phones, cameras, computers, entertainment and home appliance, etc. and home appliances from iconic brands, such as Samsung, Lenovo, Hitachi, TCL, Midea, Ariston, Rinnai, Huawei and Amazfit.
