In 1990, Mr. Salem Abdulwasea had thought of a new business opportunity in the field of electronics and technology. He thought of establishing retail chain stores and distribution channels for the latest high tech innovative products and gadgets. His idea revolved on creating a new theme of business with different style, image, and atmosphere that would provide unique shopping experience. In order to fulfill his vision and dream, he established a firm with the name of TARSAM TRADING ESTABLISHMENT, and gradually was able to open 10 different stores in Saudi Arabia. These stores were located in different cities across the country including Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, and Al-Khobar.
In 1997, Tarsam had decided to expand its business and join the UAE market. They were very successful in doing so and were able to open 9 different branches across the country. Their first retail shop branch in UAE was established in Deira City Centre followed by Al-Ain City Centre, Sharjah City Centre, Mall Of The Emirates, Mirdiff City Centre, Dubai Mall, Yas Mall, Arabian Ranches, and Dubai Parks and Resorts - River Land.
In 2001, we had started a new firm entity to separate the wholesale division from our retail division. Consequently, the offer given from our Wholesale Department is hard to resists to the suppliers who are consciously aware of the high quality, durability, and after sales services that being offered from our end.
In 2008, Tarsam had decided to expand again in the gulf region. They introduced a new branch in Bahrain. Their branch is located in Al-Bahrain City Centre. Currently, Tarsam is planning to expand into new countries within the region and potentially across the world.
Ever since its establishment, Tarsam has been a reliable source of high tech products and gadgets with an established network of more than 500 suppliers and manufactures from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, United Kingdom and the United States.
