Retail

As a result of growing revenues and rising consumer confidence, Oman is highly ranked in comparison to emerging retail sectors worldwide.

ASAAS is focused on developing the retail sector in a way that it can impact the entire supply chain and bring added value to each company linked to the respective project or investment.

ASAAS understands that the retail sector’s untapped potential is a product of modernisation, as well as a distinct change in the ‘way of life’ in modern day Oman, and subsequent demographic characteristics of the nation.

ASAAS is keen to establish a retail group of dynamic regional expansion, with Oman serving as a strategic hub for the processing and handling of goods. The company will utilise local resources in support of the retail supply chain to boost In-Country Value.
