The second phase of the Lulu Hypermarket expansion at Dana Mall was opened to shoppers with a signature emphasis on fresh food: fruits and vegetables and a larger fish and seafood.
The 1456 square metre new section is part of the flagship store’s new look expansion that will see its space increase by 40% and embrace many new food trends, emphasizing healthy eating and variety as well as convenience and the trademark Lulu quality and price benefits.
The new section’s highlight includes a special service where customers can buy fresh fish at the seafood counter and have it prepared and cooked to their preference by Lulu’s expert chefs while they shop. They can choose a marinade to go with the type of fish selected and also the method of cooking – baked, steamed, grilled or cooked in spicy gravy, curry style. The service allows the Hypermarket to harness the talent of its in-house chefs and offer customers a range of Hot Food preparations with an a-la-carte flair that comes with the added advantage of absolute freshness.
This is the second phase of the flagship store’s expansion. Earlier in July, the first phase was inaugurated with a bespoke Grains and Flour Mill Section where customers could order specialty flour milled to their preference and choose from a wide range of grains and millets. The expanded section also includes a larger Bakery and Delicatessan and live cooking stations. The popular Lulu Hot Foods section has been extended and a variety of culinary live stations added to it: you can choose from Oriental dim sum to Japanese sushi or opt for India tawa and tandoor preparations ranging from breads to dosa, all prepared once you order.
The next phase of the expansion will see the upgrading of the electronics and fashion segments of the hypermarket.
