April 11, 2018 at Gran Canaria, Spain (2 days)

Fund Grube is one of the leading retailing companies across the Canary Islands. Our chain of outlets specializes in beauty, lifestyle and fashion products such as fragrances, cosmetics, make-up, watches, eyewear, fashion jewelry, leather goods, footwear, fashion and tobacco.

Our team of more than 500 professionals with over 30 years’ experience is focused in delivering the best customer service, constantly developing a range of products based on the current season trends. Quality, service and innovation are the focal points of our customer-oriented strategic vision.

Fund Grube aims to provide services to all visitors and customers either demanding products that fall into any of the categories included in our range of products or simply looking for a satisfactory buying experience at any of our 20 outlets, spread across urban and tourist areas in Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

Also, as part of a significant bid by Fund Grube to offer exclusive luxury brands, our product range, as well as our sales volume, has been steadily growing over the years.

In 1983, Girdhari Chhabria and Manu Chhabria, two brothers from India, decided to start a retail business in San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Gran Canaria, opening the first Fund Grube outlet at the CITA Shopping Center. The store introduced an innovative sales strategy –a novelty in Europe at the time–, moving from counter service by retailing staff to self-service. Tobacco products were sold almost at cost price to a growing number of foreign visitors.
