Omanoil Joins Bankmuscat Shopping Festival 2011 To Drive Customer Experience

Muscat, November 19th 2011

omanoil\'s blossoming network of ahlain convenience stores has joined more than 2,000 outlets across Oman in celebration of BankMuscat\'s second annual Shopping Festival as the exclusive fuel and lubricants partner. In addition to the host of valuable prizes, customers now stand a chance to win thirty basmaCards in five weekly draws when using their BankMuscat debit and credit cards to make purchases of daily necessities.

"Our product portfolio and the BankMuscat Shopping Festival were born out of a simple yet compelling premise of creating unparalleled customer experiences," said Hussain bin Jama Al Ishaqi, Retail General Manager at omanoil. "Our participation in the festival reflects the perfect synergy between two organizations benefiting businesses and consumers alike. With Oman\'s first chip based multi-partner rewards program and our growing convenience store footprint, the festivities do not end in December, but continue all year long with countless instant rewards, exciting benefits and a wide range of promotions and shopping privileges."

The BankMuscat Shopping Festival comprises more than 200 prizes, including OMR 1,000 each cash prize for 25 winners, holiday package for two for 25 winners, economy class ticket for two to any Oman Air destination for five winners, smart phones for 20 winners and gift vouchers for 135 winners. A mega prize of OMR 10,000 will be awarded in the final draw.

Customers are entitled to enter the draw with every BankMuscat card transaction worth five Omani Riyals. Each transaction is equal to one opportunity, therefore increasing chances of winning every time they use their card.

Al Ishaqi explained that since its debut in 2008, ahlain has redefined the convenience store shopping experience with its signature interior design, distinct layout and hospitable ambience. He said that omanoil along with store operators Enhance and Khimji Ramdas remain committed to providing a total convenience package with premium products and services, twenty-four-hours-a-day, seven days a week.

As part of its food service management program, omanoil has introduced a proprietary line of in-house deli items and baked goods in addition to a range of Quick Service Restaurants, including Baskin Robbins, Dunkin Donuts, Wally\'s and the internationally renowned fast food chain, Burger King.

From convenience stores and meals-to-go to ATMs, car wash and lube plus facilities, omanoil prides itself as being a one-stop entity with a holistic product and service offering.
