Living in Dubai can be an expensive affair for some. However, consumers across the UAE can breathe a sigh of relief as it is expected that most popular items in the supermarkets might see a discount of 50%. Sounds fantastic, doesn’t it? Well, if you are also curious about this possible development, then read on as we tell you all about it.
50% Discounts At Supermarkets?
As mentioned above, grocery essentials in the UAE might soon become more affordable. In fact, Carrefour has already announced a massive six-week sale wherein 6000 products have been discounted. Now, other supermarkets might also join this bandwagon of discounts.
Yes, if this happens, then you might be able to get your hands on the most popular items for a 50% discount at supermarkets! This is brilliant news for anyone living in Dubai, especially with the holy month of Ramadan 2023 just days away. The reason for this possible development has been attributed to the fall in shipping costs, especially over the last two months.
Reduced Freight Costs Amongst Other Reason For The Expected Development
UAE-based food importers have been paying less for the last two months and business leaders expect that this may soon be passed on to the customers. With the freight costs dropped, the strong dollar makes import cheaper and low fuel cost is also expected to benefit the UAE residents. Although it is worth noting that there is nothing certain.
But, having said that if the shipping and wheat costs continue to fall, it makes sense that they might be reduced costs for consumers as well. This might just be something brilliant as you can indulge in some retail therapy during the festive season!
So, be on the lookout for any massive discounts that might come your way in the following days, as the first signs might just reflect on the weekly grocery runs on essentials.
