The Ministry of Commerce and Industry, in cooperation with the Ministry of Municipality, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, and Al Meera Consumer Goods Company, announced opening temporary outlets in the vicinity of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ fans.
This initiative aims to give Qatar’s visitors easy access to products throughout the tournament, ensuring them an abundance and diversity of goods. In addition to avoiding overcrowding in the permanent outlets, opening the temporary outlets seeks to provide visitors with the chance to shop, round the clock, seven days a week.
To this end, Al Meera inaugurated 10 temporary outlets across Qatar, eight of which were opened on November 2, and two will open on November 5, namely: West Bay – Onaiza 63 Ezdan, West Bay – Al Dafna 61, Bu Sidra Complex, Umm Ghuwailina Metro Station, Al Messila Bus Station, Fan Village in Lusail, Fan Village in Ras Bufontas, Caravan City in Al Messila, Barwa Barahat Al Janoub Property, and Barwa Madinatna.
In addition to temporary sales outlets to serve World Cup guests, Al Meera Consumer Goods Company has 64 branches across Qatar. These include 15 sales outlets that are open round the clock, in addition to 6 branches in the Doha Metro that will be open round the clock, seven days a week.
The Ministry explained that the initiative includes the various regions hosting World Cup guests, hence allowing them to shop for high quality services and products at reasonable prices.
The new temporary outlets started operating today, Wednesday, November 2, 2022. Al Meera used the distinctive World Cup designs and colors in decorating its outlets.
It is worth noting that the Ministry has been keen during the last period to coordinate efforts with all concerned authorities to accommodate all consumer needs.
In this context, the Ministry has cooperated with Al Meera to provide an adequate stock of various types of consumer goods such as grains, rice, oils, meat and its derivatives, poultry, eggs, cheese, dairy, juices, and foodstuffs of all kinds.
