Twelve leading Deira City Centre retailers were recognized for excellence at an exclusive ceremony held at the mall as part of its Annual General Meeting last week.
Criteria for this year’s awards included retailer performance over the last 12 months, operational compliance, customer service, and level of participation in the mall’s ongoing marketing and promotional activities.
H & M Family won in two categories: ‘Retailer of the Year’ and ‘Best Flagship Store’ awards. Sharaf DG took the award for ‘Best Anchor Store’ – and the best food and beverage outlet award went to McDonald’s.
Fuad Al Najjar, Vice President, Deira City Centre, said: “Despite the economic downturn Deira City Centre has fared well, recording high footfall and overall sales. Our retailers play a crucial role in our success and it is important to recognize the high achievers and reward them for their excellent contribution to making our mall one of the most popular shopping destinations in Dubai.”
Awards in a total of 13 categories were presented by Deira City Centre’s Vice President Fuad Al Najjar and Marketing Manager Susan Mikloska to some of the UAE’s best known local and international brands: Massimo Dutti, Mothercare, Al Falak Electronics, Aigner, Paris Gallery, Aldo, Rolex, Accessorize and Cold Stone Creamery.
