In his speech V.T. Vinod said, "It is our privilege to express our heartfelt and sincere gratitude to His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, and the government and people of Oman for giving us an opportunity to serve them in the retail sector."
"Mars has always represented the best in retail concepts and provided maximum convenience to our valuable shoppers. Let us all work together towards excellence and make shopping a different experience where customers feel that they have obtained the quality service for the money they shell out," added Vinod.
The Barka branch will be the sixth outlet for the Mars Hypermarket Group in the Sultanate of Oman, with a seventh scheduled to open in Qurum in October.
