Dubai launches sail-thru supermarket for yacht passengers, jet-skiers and beach-goers

Dubai has unveiled ‘Carrefour Bites and More by the Shore’, the world’s first sail thru supermarket.  With over 300 products on-board ranging from hot and cold snacks, ice cream, fresh food and beverages to selected non-food items like sunscreen and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, it will serve sea and shore-based customers six days a week from a custom-built ‘Aqua Pod’ which will be anchored out at sea.

Operational six days a week from 10am to 6pm (subject to weather conditions), the custom-built Aqua Pod will serve customers on yachts, jet-skis and on three selected beaches in Dubai: Kite Beach, Jumeirah Public Beach and Al Sufouh Beach.

Placing an order is simple. Jet skiers and passengers in small sailing crafts can sail up to the Aqua Pod and order at the window counter, pay and receive their packed items. Customers on larger sailing vessels in the area or on the selected beaches can make an order via the ‘Aqua Pod’ app (Android and iOS compatible) and a skiff will deliver their order within a 45-minute target delivery time.

Commenting on the launch, Hani Weiss, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim Retail, said: ‘Carrefour Bites and More by the Shore is a world-first for Carrefour and our industry. More than ever, a successful business depends on continually reinventing itself to stay ahead of customer needs and expectations. Carrefour Bites and More by the Shore is an innovation underpinned by a clear business strategy based on ‘customers first’, and aligned with our vision to create great moments for everyone, every day.
