About Al Hokair

Founded in 1975, the Al Hokair Group is a leading player in the retail, hotel and leisure sectors of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. When the pandemic forced it to close 1,750 retail stores, Emakina was the ideal business partner to help it face an unprecedented economic challenge. 

About the project
