Our partnership with Brands for Less comes as part of our roadmap towards a stronger and more advanced emirate. It gives great pleasure to align our mission with national strategies that seek to not only cement Dubai’s global position as one of the smartest cities, but to also invigorate the national market to make the emirate one of the fastest to recover from the pandemic in the world.”

By partnering with IQ Robotics,  we are able to leverage faster turnaround times of injecting newness in stock back onto our retail shelves, especially considering that increased volume capability is necessary to ensure we provide this same experience consistently on a larger scale.”

The partnership with Brands For Less was signed on Monday 26 October in the presence of Mr.Fadi Amoudi, CEO of IQ Robotics and Mr. Toufic Kreidieh, CEO of BFL Group.
