Cenomi was founded in 1990 by Fawaz Alhokair and his two brothers, Abdulmajid and Salman, with the opening of two menswear stores in Riyadh. This was the start of a journey that would lead to the company becoming a leading retail and shopping center player in the region. It would also be the beginning of a relationship with major international retail groups such as Inditex, Apple, Decathlon, Subway and many others.
