From modest beginnings 30 years ago, Nahdi Medical Company has grown dramatically to become the largest retail pharmacy chain in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
Beginning with two small pharmacies in Jeddah was the foundation for what has since become a nation-wide network of more than 1,100+ stores and 10,000+ employees from 30+ different nationalities who serve more than 85 million guests every year.
It started in 1986, when Abdullah Al Nahdi acquired two stores, the journey of expansion has begun and it has completely redefined the retail pharmacy market in Saudi Arabia, which makes Nahdi one of the most prevalent, and the fastest growing companies in the region. Nahdi has been selected as one of the “Great Place to Work For” awards in Saudi Arabia, MENA and all over Asia.
