Majid Al Futtaim (based in Dubai) just bought 26 Geants around the GCC region from BMA International’s Retail Arabia and they plan to rebrand them as Carrefours. So I guess the Geant in 360 Mall will become a Carrefour soon along with two other Geants in Kuwait. Guess it’s going to be Carrefour VS Lulu Hyper from now on.[Source]
I received a box of chocolate goodness from Nutella. They’re quite possibly the only brand in Kuwait that doesn’t need marketing because half of Kuwait are advocates while the other half like Nutella anyway. I had no idea they were around for 50 years already. More on their history [here].
To celebrate their anniversary they’re sharing everyone’s [Nutella Story] and you can take part by adding your own story with Nutella. Starting from tomorrow Nutella will be having a stand in 360 Mall for 2 days in front of Geant serving a variety of Nutella foods, something I look forward to except I don’t go to malls that often.
I’m a hardcore PC user but I know how much PS4 fans are suffering with the overpriced cost of the newly released PlayStation 4 in Kuwait. Geant just got their stock and they’re the first I see to sell it for a decent price. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be sold out soon, so if you want one you should grab one now.
Update: Already sold out
Update II: They’re now telling customers it’s only available for pre-order and not in stock even though it says now available on their website and facebook.
Spinneys, the kinda high-end grocery store is planning to open in Kuwait competing with Sultan Center and Carrefour. I’m going to prefer them over other stores if they adapt their Go Green services like offering reusable bags, smoke-free environment and installing recycle machines.[Source]
