The owner and her husband have been in Real Estate in the UAE for over 15 years. They were renting and furnishing apartments and villas across Dubai lead to a side idea that grew into a full time new business venture.
While in the real estate business, they began buying out entire properties including contents so an idea began to liquidate this stock into revenue. A warehouse in Al Quoz was on the market for rent which they signed a lease on. The owner’s husband is a solid wood and antique lover which began in his home country, the US. Even though he was living and working in the UAE and beyond he still used to hunt and keep an eye out for special and unique pieces.
Opening our doors in July 2014 as a weekend sale of pre-owned furniture quickly developed. After little advertising The Emporium UAE was born. The success of first couple of months of only opening every Friday and Saturday was overwhelming. The business began to grow and grow. The owners began buying more items off the secondary market and off wholesalers whilst listening to what the customers were looking for. They hunted for great deals in solid wood to pass on to their customers.
Customers loved the friendly service and the passion that came with knowledge of the furniture that was taught by the owners down through the staff. All items were handpicked by the owners for the quality and possible story behind the piece. All prices were set on how much it cost so prices were negotiable and exceptional value. Word of mouth soon spread and began to get busier and busier.
A few months passed and numerous requests to be a full time store. The next step was taken.
A new bigger location was found with ample parking and great lightning. The new lease was signed and work began. It was officially launched in August 2015 – opening 7 days per week. The owners have not looked back since. The Emporium UAE has grown from strength to strength.
Newly trained staff was added to free up the owners to focus on buying. A successful trip to India happened. A partnership was born with a factory in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India – another new concept has begun. Re-Ordering, better prices and even offering wholesale to local retailers. Our Industrial/Recycled Range has expanded and our prices are better than all local competitors without sacrificing quality.
We are continuing to import solid wood items from India - Great Mix always available.
