Our History

Our History

Our roots go back to 1983 in Dubai, UAE, and we have achieved many milestones since then, which has paved the way to where we are today. Talal Group was founded by brothers, Mr. Mohammed Haji Baliyil and Mr. Yousaf Haji Baliyil, who envisioned the United Arab Emirates’ opportunities. We know the importance of maintaining relationships, as we are still today, a family-owned business. The Talal family extends beyond to our loyal customers whom we serve with the utmost commitment.

Our founders began their retail venture with a small convenience store in Deira, Dubai. Their hard work and perseverance in embodying the values of the company drove the business to greater heights because they always pictured the convenience of the customer in mind.

Hence, they decided to scale their expertise and expand the business by providing the best services, essential products, at the best prices, which are some features by which we are well known to our customers today. Since then, keeping alive the inherent value of the brand Talal, the group has stood firm, fostered by formidable vision and guidance, to emerge, a successful business conglomerate.
