Batelco opens retail shop in Bahrain

The shop is located in the Zallaq area, close to the BIC, University of Bahrain.

Bahrain telecom services operator Batelco has opened a retail shop in Zallaq for the telecom sector.

The new outlet features not only a walk-in shop but also a drive-thru, and is completely cashless, in line with modern international retail trends.

The shop will be open 24/7 and is the first telco retail shop outside of the airport to serve customers round-the-clock.

Commenting on the new retail concept, Batelco’s General Manager Consumer Division, Maitham Abdulla, said: “Batelco aims to create retail spaces that are more inviting for its customers, and as part of that we are very excited to introduce this new two-in-one concept, with walk-in and drive-thru options. This is in line with Batelco’s ambitions to continuously enhance the customer experience through added convenience and accessibility.”

He concluded: The store location in Zallaq is also very strategic as it enables us to cater to the residents and visitors of this flourishing area. While working on our digital advancement, it will always remain important that we have a physical presence to interact with customers face to face. The convenience offered by the new shop and drive-thru, provides a comfortable solution at a time when public safety is at an all-time high due to the pandemic.”
