Message From Chairman

Let me start by thanking Allah (SWT) for making Al-Raya Supermarkets the largest supermarket chain in the western and southern regions of Saudi Arabia. I owe this to my team, our customers and our suppliers without whom this achievement would have beenjust a far-fetched dream. Our mission is to improve our business performance by working in close collaboration with our suppliers. Our commitment from day one has been to provide excellent quality for low prices and this has not only earned us laurels from ourclients but their loyal support and invaluable trust turning them into our dedicated customers. I assure each customer that Al-Raya teammembers would make your shopping experience a pleasurable one every time you visit us.

Factors that have contributed to the growth of Al-Raya Supermarkets include the overall prosperity in the Kingdom. It`s not justa growth in the number of supermarkets but the development in the quality of these markets that is creditable. Over the years, we have been trying to meet the demands of the demanding consumers by improving upon our displays, organized shelves, increase in thenumber of checkout counters, better preservation methods, better customer service, loyalty program, efficiency on the supply chain, category management and overall improvements in services. Over the years our Philosophy of being a meeting point for the shopperand supplier has helped us to emerge as a mightier force in the field of supermarkets. Our customers have paved for us their choices and our suppliers have helped us to build this road to success.

True to our nation`s call for Saudisation we have prepared a plan for the training and development of a Saudi workforce working along with expatriates to support and improve the human resource of the enterprise. Our staff numbers are bound to keep growing forthe foreseeable future with more locations to be opened soon and we look forward to having more Saudis join us giving them not only an employment but a sense of business acumen to serve the society with a human input.
