Homegrown supermarket chain Spinneys and pharmacy retailer Aster Pharmacy have partnered to introduce the first holistic wellness concept to Spinneys stores across the UAE.

The joint venture is set to launch in Q4 2022.

The concept will offer high-quality vitamins, minerals, health supplements, specialist foods, and natural beauty products.

As an extension of Spinneys’ ‘Eat Well, Live Well’ philosophy, ethical sourcing will guide all merchandising to offer naturally-derived healthy and sustainable products and ingredients at the store.

Sunil Kumar, CEO of Spinneys, UAE, explained: “We are excited to partner with Aster Pharmacy to launch the first supermarket wellness concept in the UAE. As a truly local supermarket, the community is our heartland and it is our mission to nourish and inspire customers to live better lives, day by day. Our new holistic wellness offering is a direct response to our customers’ desire to live healthier lives. We are dedicated to understanding our customers’ needs, their shopping behaviours, and what we must do to help them live better.”

We are excited about this new chapter with Spinneys, as together we can offer UAE customers a convenient, accessible way to shop for the very best health and wellness products.”

Kumar added: “This joint venture reaffirms our commitment to the people of the UAE to make a meaningful difference in the communities where we operate. With growing demand from conscious consumers for supermarkets to provide a broader variety of health and wellness products under one roof, we are on a mission to innovate and expand our retail offering to make healthy living more accessible and convenient. 

The first Spinneys store to introduce the concept will be announced soon with a nationwide rollout to follow across the UAE.
