ENOC Group has recently opened three service stations in Sharjah, as part of its accelerated plans to expand its retail network by 30 stations across the emirate over the next two years.
The expansion of ENOC’s service station network in Sharjah is a critical component of the Group’s long-term strategic objective to strengthen its retail presence across the UAE with 191 stations in the country by 2021.

Spread across an estimated 3,000 sq.ft respectively, all three service stations are fully equipped with four multimedia fuel dispensers, multiple fuel tanks as well as Zoom convenience stores. Integrated digital wall displays are installed on the forecourt columns and at the ZOOM entrances, enabling customers to receive information on the latest offers and promotions available at the service stations. In addition the service station located in Al Yarmook includes a Tasjeel centre for vehicle testing and registration.
