Jarir Bookstore

Let us start with defining Jarir bookstore by saying "Jarir bookstore, its not just a bookstore" that is Jarir's slogan and it true because Jarir's 1st specialty is books and then they are specialized in electronics from A to Z, what gives them a better positioning in the market that they are a bookstore that sells electronic goods.

Jarir Bookstore is the result of effort and commitment of visionary Al-Agil brothers, who started their dream project in 1979 with a small store located in Jarir Street, Malaz, Riyadh.

The idea is to develop a survey that customer is willing to answer, short questions, easy to think about and last but not least subjective for us as future marketers to interpret as results that will help us to have a clear idea about our project.
