Dubai Festival City Mall, a leading shopping and lifestyle destination in the region, has broadened its retail offering with the opening of eight new stores during the first half of the year. The new outlets represent well recognised brands from the fashion, footwear, apparel and jewelry categories as well as the healthcare and financial services sectors.
“We are committed to bringing exceptional global brand experiences to the mall and this recent wave of new retail and F&B offerings is part of our vision to provide our visitors with the widest possible choice while enabling them to truly enjoy the time they spend at Dubai Festival City Mall,” said Murray Bell, Managing Director-Retail and Leisure, Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate (AFGRE).
The new outlets include Stadium, a flagship store that offers a mix of sports and lifestyle, Rockport, the first company to use advanced athletic technology in a casual shoe, Kingsley Health which provides a full range of apparel and accessories for men and ladies, and the first Cioccolatitaliani outlet in the UAE which promotes Italian chocolate culture at Dubai Festival City Mall.
Other retail offerings that were recently launched at the mall include Eyezone, an optical specialist, Koraba, the UAE’s leading retailer of luxury amber jewelry, Commercial Bank International (CBI) and Vince Camuto, a US based high street fashion brand catering into footwear and accessories for ladies.
All eight new stores are the latest addition to Dubai Festival City Mall’s growing portfolio of retailers as the established leisure, entertainment and shopping destination just off Garhoud bridge is gearing up for more expansion during the summer months.
They will include household brands, such as Mothercare, Boots, and luxury international designer Elie Tahari which are putting the final touches before their DFC mall summer 2013 debuts.
“Regular additions and refreshments to our overall retail mix is important for both visitors and tenants in line with Dubai Festival City Mall’s mission to satisfy our growing multicultural customer base while growing footprint that can be leveraged by flagship and line stores across the mall,” said Bell.
“As our industry evolves, we will continue to adapt mall offerings to keep pace with customer needs and further enrich our tenant mix to provide visitors with a more robust shopping experience.”
