UAE-based hypermarket chain LuLu is planning to open four new outlets in Egypt.

The retailer has signed an agreement with the Egyptian Internal Trade Development Authority that will see it invest EGP10 billion (USD557 million) to build more than 100,000m² of retail space and create around 40,000 jobs. The new Egyptian stores will be located in 6 October City, New Cairo and Obour.
