Spinneys is more than a store, we are a community of people who are united in our love for pure products that protect the health of people and our planet.

In 1962, we opened our first supermarket in Deira at Al Nasr Square. Our first customer was the late His Highness Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the then Ruler of Dubai. He bought a bottle of grenadine syrup. We opened our first outlet in Sharjah in 1964. By 1966 we had six stores between Dubai and Sharjah. This is also the year that oil was discovered off the coast of Dubai, which immediately attracted foreign traders, spurred major infrastructure projects and enhanced economic growth. We opened Spinneys Jumeirah in 1967, which we still own 42 years later. Two years after this, Spinneys in Ras Al Khaimah opened for business, too.later be one of the Middle East’s leading supermarket chains.

We also opened a new warehouse within the Al Quoz Industrial Area on 31 October, 1995, that replaced our 19-year-old Zabeel Road facility. The first iteration of Spinneys magazine, titled Living in the Gulf, launched in 1996.

We celebrated our 40th anniversary in style on 28 October, 2002. In 2005, the Spinneys cycling team was formed with four members.
