Founded in 1980through a special decree issued by  the  UAE government, Bani Yas Coop has come a long way from its beginnings as a cooperative society more than 40 years ago.

In 1989, to meet with the rapid growth  Bani Yas Coop has cultivated through the years, it expanded to a brand new  4,429 square meters space in Baniyas signifying at the time, their largest distribution center to meet the needs of their ever-growing consumer base as well embarking into their first step into the retail space with the very first   Baniyas Cooperative Society Supermarket. To date,     Bani Yas  Coop is running four supermarkets and retail stores located in Shahama, Samha, Mussafah, and  Mafraq.

In   December  20,   2014, Bani  Yas   Coop formed its investment and property development arm, AI Resala. It is involved in the redevelopment of the main branch of  Bani Yas Coop following the substantial damage to the building due to a fire in August 2016.
