Danube Building Materials, the leader in construction, building materials and shop fitting industries, has announced that the first ‘BUILDMART’ in its growing chain of retail complexes has set record footfall of 20,000 visitors only three months into its operation. Located in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, the AED 75 million state-of-the-art retail complex also registered high sales within the same period and has boosted the overall sales of Danube by 100 per cent. Given the excellent response, Danube officials revealed that ‘BUILDMART’ is looking to double current sales figures in six months’ time.

Situated on a 150,000 sq. ft. plot across the Cove Rotana Resort along Zaid Road, ‘BUILDMART’ incorporates a 20,000 sq. feet showroom, a 40,000 sq. ft. warehouse, and a huge open area for additional shops and parking. A total of 24 sections comprise the shopping complex, including dedicated spaces for chandeliers, Venetian blinds, light fittings, kitchens, bathroom, tiles and shower rooms, among others. Building specialists are also available within the premises to help shoppers on product-related questions and suggestions on the best choice for their requirements.

“We are proud to be reporting these excellent accomplishments merely three months since we inaugurated our very first ‘BUILDMART’ in Ras Al Khaimah, which is proof that we have successfully penetrated this market,” said Rizwan Sajan, Chairman, Danube Building Materials. “The strategic steps we have taken to address the increased demand for top quality building materials across the UAE backs up our high growth expectations for ‘BUILDMART’ in RAK for the year ahead.”

Chandeliers, wall papers, ceramic tiles, luxury sanitary ware and Venetian blinds are some of the most in-demand products within ‘BUILDMART’, with a large number of individual home owners in Dubai, locals from the Northern Emirates and Western expatriates shopping for home fixtures and interiors. Property owners are also expressing great enthusiasm for fit outs and home design solutions. In addition to homeowners, interior designers and consultants have also appreciated the extensive selection of 15,000 high quality products, which are installed in an actual home set-up within the facility for more convenient shopping.

“This is only the beginning of a strategic expansion plan we have set for the ‘BUILDMART’ brand, and we are confident that our similar facilities within other markets such as in Bahrain, which was inaugurated earlier this year and in KSA, which will be inaugurated later this month, as well as the ‘BUILDMART Boutique’ branches in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, will be met with similar reception from customers,” concluded Sajan.
