Family Food Centre, Qatar’s oldest organised supermarket chain, is celebrating its 40-year anniversary with the launch of a new ‘express’ Family Mart store at Al Mirqab Al Jadeed Street. 

Over 120,000 customers visit Family stores each week, served by over 1,000 friendly staff. Five large stores span across Qatar, consisting of 220,000 square feet of retail area.

According to Family Food Centre Chairman Abdul Rahman Al Ansari, Family Food Centre started in 1978 in the very same street. Family Food Centre is a local Qatar brand and has been serving Qatar with the best products available.

Worldwide food and products are something that is synonymous to Family Food Centre. Four large stores have been identitied with our name over the last 40 years. On this occasion, we’d like to present to you an all-new format, which packs everything you need.’

He said that the look and feel of their new store is something that is also very new to Qatar.

Family Mart is the first store in Doha Souq mall. We have more than 500 parking slots for our customer’s convenience. The very concept of this store is essentially a combination of the best practices, learnings and customer stories of love and loyalty. Our customers, suppliers and service are what make us Family Food Centre.’

Family Food Centre outlets offer a huge range of products for customers regardless of nationality. Family customers are at the heart and soul of everything they do, according to Al Ansari. Their strong values are part of their identity and integral to their success.
