GGICO’s illustrious history began in 1973 as a public shareholding company under the name Arab Economists Corporation (P.S.C), which was established to support the development of residential real estate through sales and rentals. The name of the company was changed to Gulf General Investment Company (P.S.C) in 1992 and in 2001, it relocated its headquarters to Dubai.
GGICO’s journey of success continues through its prudent expansion strategy, with the public shareholding company holding ownership of a number of well-established subsidiaries in the UAE and international markets. The Group is involved in a wide spectrum of business operations in major growth sectors and has established significant projects in the industrial, hospitality and retail sectors.
GGICO has stamped its mark on the UAE’s corporate landscape by proving its credentials as a well-diversified, dynamic organisation with the leadership competencies and financial capabilities to more than meet the needs of the rapidly growing UAE economies and international markets.
Since 2010, GGI Retail has been focused on bringing a unique flavour to 14 of the region’s foremost shopping avenues and malls including Mall of the Emirates, The Dubai Mall, Dubai Festival City, Abu Dhabi Mall and Al Wahda Mall. The Middle Eastern retail industry has changed over the last few years. This has meant retailers have had to buck trends through working, to make service and customer satisfaction a part of their DNA.
GGI Retail works to enhance the experience of the UAE’s discerning consumer with a select number of luxury, mid-range and kids fashion brands in its portfolio, a skilled international workforce with a long-term development strategy.
GGI Retail differentiates itself in the market by collaborating closely with both stakeholders and customers to elevate the shopping experience with its core values of innovation, commitment and customer satisfaction.
