Oncost Cash & Carry, the first wholesale membership retail store in Kuwait, focuses on satisfying the needs of customers and professional businesses alike. With a goal to provide a variety of goods at wholesale prices, Oncost attempts to give customers an economic yet pleasant and enjoyable experience. In addition to serving retail customers, Oncost also provides professional businesses with a one-stop shop supply chain management service for all their food and non-food needs.
Oncost started its operations in 2011, with its first outlet opening within the Al-Forda (Central Fruits & Vegetables market) in Sulaibiya. In 2016, Oncost launched its second and third outlets, in Hawally and Fahaheel, respectively, while in 2017, it launched its E-Commerce platform, offering its customers the convenience of shopping from their homes. Oncost launched its 4th and largest outlet in March 2018 in Shuwaikh. The brand’s pricing policy has been constructed to focus on competitive pricing by the unit and wholesale prices by the carton, to pass on substantial savings to its loyal customer base, particularly those who make large volume purchases. Moreover, there are the added benefits of weekly promotions that see customers shopping for household staples with great savings.
In early 2018, Oncost launched the only retail Membership Program in Kuwait that offers up to 4% cashback rewards.
