How we beganIn 1953 Sheikh Ali Abdullah Al Tamimi established the Tamimi Group to provide pipeline construction, general construction and related services to Saudi Arabia’s fast-growing oil and manufacturing industries. Over the past 60 years, the Tamimi Group has expanded to more than 30 businesses that support the kingdom’s emergence as a major force in the global economy.In 1979, Sheikh Tamimi opened the kingdom’s first modern supermarket in Khobar and partnered with Safeway, a major North American food retailer, to import products from around the world. The store quickly became a huge success, attracting both Saudi and expatriate customers from across the Eastern Province.From the beginning, Tamimi Markets offered the widest selection of local, regional and international foods and household products in Saudi Arabia. Other Tamimi Market soon opened in Aqrabeyah, Dammam, Riyadh and Jeddah.In 2011, Tamimi Markets unveiled a new modern, attractive and welcoming supermarket design to make shopping even more appealing, convenient and fun.
