Union Co-op supermarket freezes prices on 50,000 items

It includes products such as food items, textiles, outdoor and camping supplies

With two long weeks to go until payday, we've got some good news – a Dubai supermarket has frozen prices on tens of thousands of products until the end of this year.

Union Co-op has announced the move in a bid to increase the "happiness level" of its customers at its branches across the city.

The price freeze includes 50,000 products such as food items, textiles, outdoor and camping supplies.

Khalid Humaid bin Diban Al Falasi, chief executive of the Union Co-op, said: "This was a very well-planned move because we value our consumers, and we want them to enjoy the perks of shopping with Union Co-op.

"Union Co-op has been very careful about maintaining the quality of commodities and the happiness level of its consumers."

He added: "This move comes as a part of our Year of Zayed initiative, which sees us give something more to the society.

"As a part of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, this time we plan on competitive pricing to our community on quality products, so that they are able to enjoy the best shopping experience."

It's the latest good news for cost-conscious shoppers in Dubai following the launch of the UAE's first discount supermarket earlier this month.

Viva is aiming to cut shoppers' grocery bills by a third amid a rising demand for cheaper stores following the introduction of VAT in January.

It is based on chains such as Lidl and Aldi - and will offer stacks of own-brand alternatives to pricey products.

Of course, Dubai also has plenty of great deals on restaurants and nights out – with happy hours available across the city.

Union Co-op, stores across Dubai. Until the end of 2018. See corporate.unioncoop.ae/barsha.aspx for branches.
