    And to get you started, we list down all the 6
    critical steps involved in opening your venture

  • Gather all the required documents

1. Do your research
Before starting a grocery store in Emirates, you
must do thorough research and plan for the
location, local areas and regions, the products
youll sell, company structure, business license
and the viability of the desired business idea.
2. Gather all the required documents
Starting a grocery store business in Dubai
demands diligence for paperwork. It includes
certifications and approval to be taken from
various legal authorities. In addition to that,
valid visas and permissions must be acquired
too. Ensure that you have all the documents
ready before you apply for your companys
registration and double-check before paperwork
submission to avoid any discrepancies
3. Decide your trade name
1. While deciding a trading name for your
business, keep in mind that it has to be the
same on the license and the grocery store
signboard. Moreover, the name must be in
accordance with the DEDs guidelines for a
legitimate trading name. 1. To avoid any legal
issues, ensure that you dont use any
controversial words in your trade name.
Furthermore, always use the full name of a
person and not any nicknames if you wish to keep
it as your grocery stores official business
4. Obtain the initial approval
  • Passport, visa, and trading license application
    must be submitted, followed by tenancy contract,
    Ejari registration, Municipality approvals,
    trademark registration from the DED, and other
    required submissions.
  • After these documents are thoroughly examined,
    the DED or the concerned economic department
    will issue your initial approval certificate
    required to set up your business in the UAE.

5. Get your license
Either if you want to start a Dubai supermarket
or are interested to start online grocery
shopping in Dubai, every business activity is
tagged to a particular license category. To open
a grocery store in the UAE, a commercial license
is necessary. It allows you to sell all grocery-
related products except medical,
pharmaceutical, herbal, and cosmetics products.
What are the critical guidelines to follow when
opening a grocery store in Dubai?
  • 1. f the stores location is to be changed then
    the owner must have approval from the DED
    beforehand. Its better to rent a shop in the UAE
    instead of investing in real estate as a rented
    office allows hassle-free relocation.
  • The DED must know about all the products being
    sold at the store. Ensure that you dont sell any
    medical, pharmaceutical, herbal, and cosmetics
    products as a grocery license dont have the
    required permits to sell these products.
  • Keep a proper sale invoice system that clearly
    states the policies regarding replacement,
    return, and refund of the purchased commodities.
  • Any amendment/alteration must not be carried out
    without the approval of the concerned authority.
    Any deviation from the expected business
    functioning must be reported to the jurisdiction.
