fbb – India’s most preferred fashion destination by Future Group – has launched two standalone stores in the Sultanate this week.
These two stores, a first time for fashion lovers in Oman, are located at Mall of Muscat Mabellah & City Centre Suhar respectively. fbb stores in Oman have been launched under the joint venture formed last year by Future Retail, the retail arm of Future Group, with Oman based Khimji Ramdas LLC.
As part of its grand expansion plan, fbb has forayed into the Oman market. fbb is a leading value retail chain with a high density merchandise and a wide range of fashion. The new fbb stores in Oman have been designed to create a superior experience for customers. fbb has planned to launch around 15 stores in the GCC.
Sachin Malhotra, Director, Future Retail LLC said, “fbb has successfully established itself as India’s fashion hub. Oman has a large and relatively untapped market for fashion. I think there is a lot to offer to the Omani audience, especially to the fast growing millennials segment. Starting with two ‘fbb’ stores at Muscat & Suhar, we are geared up to expand our footprint across the Middle East and make fbb one of the preferred global fashion brands.”
