Fujairah City Centre main entrance
With less than a month to go until the opening of Fujairah City Centre on April 4th, the community is buzzing with anticipation and excitement as Fujairah’s largest shopping mall featuring the biggest hypermarket and new entertainment and leisure attractions prepares to open its doors to the public. Majid Al Futtaim Properties’ sixth shopping mall in the UAE will be Fujairah’s newest landmark, meeting place and community hub for the growing Emirate. With training now under way for the locally-hired customer service and mall operational teams, Fujairah residents have been given the opportunity to contribute and be a part of this milestone project.
Fujairah City Centre will foster economic growth within the Emirate, through the creation of more than 1,200 permanent jobs from retail positions to mall management. Leveraging the local insight and interest from residents, all of the mall’s customer services staff have been hired from the immediate community, creating a platform for the continued professional development of the Fujairah population. Dedicated training for newly hired mall staff, including the Marketing, Operations and Security staff is currently under way following Majid Al Futtaim Properties’ international standards of service across its regional malls. Furthermore, the mall’s 105 retail outlets and the largest Carrefour hypermarket will provide long-term employment opportunities, benefiting the community.
“Fujairah City Centre has received a strong and positive amount of support from the local community as interest in job opportunities and retail space from international brands has been overwhelming,” said Majed Al Fahim, Senior Mall Manager for Fujairah City Centre. “The long-term impact of the mall will benefit retail, tourism and commercial opportunities for Fujairah on the whole. In the countdown to opening, we are confident in its successful delivery and are excited to establish the mall as a landmark for the wider community.”
Residents will have a choice of international and local brands, offering a premium shopping and dining experience for shoppers who previously had to drive to other Emirates for these stores. The retail mix has been tailored to meet the immediate and growing needs of Fujairah residents - trusted brands that offer value, quality and convenience of offer. Popular and affordable fashion brands such as H&M, New Look, Aldo, Aeropostale, Splash and Max fashion are making their debut, as well as newer food and beverage concepts such as Pinkberry, Tim Horton’s, Just Falafel and Candelite.
The mall is being developed in joint partnership with the government-owned Fujairah Investment Establishment and will be opening its doors on April 4th, 2012.
