Speaking to the Kuwait Times on the sidelines of the conference, he said, “Gold Card members will get better rewards and more targeted services. They also will get free services inside our stores such as free valet parking, fish cleaning, cooking, VIP cashier and price discount on more than five items every month,” he said.
He said, “There will be an auto draw every month in which the computer will select the names automatically. We will give away free TSC gift vouchers.”

“Our latest service is the Gold Club wherein we will categorize our customers in different clubs such as cheese lovers or meat lovers and so on. No more mass marketing or sending unwanted items to customers like sending meat offers to pure vegetarians. We have a smart system that will segregate the customers according to their needs when they shop,” he added.
Wassim Makarem, Director of Marketing and E-Commerce at TSC, said: “we have designed the TSC Gold Card program with customers in mind. At TSC, we are committed to constantly indulging customers with a unique shopping experience tailored to meet their needs, services and satisfaction”. Those customers who enter into the Gold Card program will avail unprecedented awards tailor-made exclusively for them.

Makarem said though the Gold Card was officially launched yesterday, the actual promotion will kick off from October 10 onwards. “We already selected 10,000 customers as Gold Card holders. They will be informed of it and its benefits,” he added.
Makarem told the Kuwait Times that TSC would also start its first online store. The online shopping will also be available via an app for the gold members who will have faster delivery than the regular customers. We are also bringing about a lot of changes to our stores which will be completed before the end of this year, he added.
