Dubai’s Floating Supermarket

For yacht-owners who find docking to shop for groceries a time-waster, Majid Al Futtaim (one of Dubai’s largest shopping malls) has a solution. Now, as a franchise of the French Carrefour, there’s a floating supermarket anchored at sea. Those aboard can have their groceries and snacks (of which there are 300 options), delivered right to their vessel. Beachgoers can also call the number, which is advertised on the side of the store, to have snacks delivered directly to their spot in the sand. Though the concept’s creators admit the demand isn’t sky-high, they believe interest will increase organically. Read more about the maritime market at CNN.
