Marina Gulf appoints Harper Dennis Hobbs for its UK entry

October 18, 2010

Marina Gulf, a Dubai-based furniture retailer, has appointed retail property experts Harper Dennis Hobbs to advise on its entry in to the UK.

The furniture and homewares retailer is looking for 25,000 sq ft stores and will initially target areas in Central London, High Street Kensington, Kings Road, Tottenham Court Road, Regent Street as well as Lakeside and Bluewater for its entry into the UK market.

Khurshid Vakil at Marina Gulf said: “The UK is a sophisticated retail environment and we are confident that the product range will appeal to the UK consumer as it has greatly appealed to the UK expatriates in the Gulf markets that the brand operates in.”

James Ebel at Harper Dennis Hobbs commented: “Marina Gulf will bring a fresh new approach to furniture and homewares retailing to the UK with its innovative concept based on fusion of styles, a prudent tailoring of trends, high quality and the right price and we hope to open the first stores by mid 2011.”

After a successful decade of retailing in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Bahrain markets, where it has secured high brand recognition and impressive market share, Marina Gulf is looking to expand into new markets internationally and add to its 27 existing stores in the Middle East markets.
