French-based retail chain Monoprix is set to open at Qatar-based Doha Festival City shopping mall, which is expected to open next February.

The new 7,000m² store is claimed to be the world's largest hypermarket, offering more than 35,000 goods across various local and international brands, which includes organic, fresh items from regional farmers.

The hypermarket also intends to provide different international brands such as those from UK, Spain and Italy, as well as include a new make-up collection from Paris and Milan.

Monoprix Qatar will feature a French bakery, a waffle house and Cave à Fromage, which will offer a wide range of international cheeses.

“We are delighted that Monoprix has entrusted its largest store worldwide to Doha Festival City."

The new store aims to offer better customer experience with restaurants, concept stores, electronic stores and other entertainment options.

Monoprix regional general manager Sebastien Farhat said: “We are delighted to announce our newest and largest outlet, and we want to tell the market to expect something very special from Monoprix, as we widen our footprint in Qatar.

"We believe that Doha Festival City is set to be a must-visit destination that will become a part of the fabric of Qatar life.”

Doha Festival City Mall general manager Trevor Hill said: “We are delighted that Monoprix has entrusted its largest store worldwide to Doha Festival City.

"We are confident that Monoprix’s excellent reputation in customer service and unique product lines, will complement our very carefully selected range of brands within Doha Festival City, as well as reinforcing our commitment to offering shoppers a world class experience.”

Monoprix is one of more than 500 retail brands to open at Doha Festival City. The other stores feature fine and casual dining, green spaces, as well as indoor and outdoor entertainment hubs.
