Once Upon time in a Dubailand, there was sale, sale, sale and then sale, but wait this is not a fairytale, it's an everyday price-wreck mall with top notch brands.
On the outskirts of Dubai, 30 minutes away from skyscrapers, busy city and traditional retail stores, what seems more like a mirage in the desert is actually Dubai Outlet Mall; the one and only value hub in the UAE. Oh yeah, it's picture-perfect for bargain hunters, wallet savers and shopaholics to quench their fashion appetite all year round. Since Dubai Outlet Mall is the home of more than 240 brand stores from innerwear, outerwear, sportswear kids-wear, beauty wear to home-ware; with the word "Discounts" sketched on their display windows each time you visit.
With their 30% to 90% reductions, you can snap clutch whatever you wish to buy without having cold feet at the cashier counter. But before you start wondering if it's worth the distance or if you'll ever find your favorite brand there, let me introduce you to the gang; Aeropostale, Clarks, Marco Azzali, Racetrack, Adams Kids, Adidas, Paris Gallery, Aldo, BHS, Damas, Dune, Ecco, G-Star Raw, Guess, Home Mobility, Kenneth Cole, Mango, Tommy Hilfiger, Verri, Sunglass Hut, Timberland, sckechers, Rivoli, Burberry, Nike, Pumkin Patch, Nine West, Massimo Dutti, Pierre Cardin, Givenchy, Versace, Priceless, Studio R, Escada, Fendi, Aigner, Prada and countless more, they left nothing for you not to visit.
Besides the every corner settee, since they know that your husbands will be waiting with knee sized bags, they also have coffee shops and restaurants for both of you to kick back and take a shopping break; Starbucks of course, El Mondo Café, Tim Horton, Curries and Grills, Chowking Oriental along with a huge food court and guess what, a big Chuck E Cheese leeway for you and your family to eat and have fun.
Don't underestimate the mall yet, life gets easier at Dubai Outlet Mall with their endless facilities; photo studio, ATM machines, public phones, luggage storage room, clothes alteration, money exchange, lost property room, internet cafes, mobile recharging services, car cleaning services, baby carts, first aid room, taxi lounge, mother and father baby room and finally gift vouchers. They also have a tourism program which provides tourists with more offers and discounts' cards.
If you think I am done here, nope I am just warming up. At Dubai Outlet Mall you can enjoy a free cup of tea or coffee on every 100 dhs you spend from Sunday till Wednesday from 10 am till 2 pm. Every weekend the mall holds a market from 10 am to 10 pm with new styles, handicrafts and gift items for less. In addition to the all year round money off, there is also Half Price Mondays (HPM). Yes, you heard it right, 1/2 price Monday combines convenience with bargaining giving you the chance to access a wider range of high and fashionable brands and buy the best of the best for less, much more less. Stay alert for the outlet's weekly stores offers; you can check their website for detailed info and don't miss out on their events calendar; every month they have a hoo-ha event that could change your life.
I have got to tell you that Dubai Outlet Mall is not showered with the current season in fashion, so if you're not too conscious about wearing last season's fashion, you're good to go, and you'll definitely find no room in your car for all the bags to fit.
Unless you want to head to Abu Dhabi, I suggest you download the exact mall address preferably on a map, 'cause it's kinda a tricky, let's face it it's in the desert. If you don't have a car, Dubai is full of shuttle buses destined to get you there, and you can download their schedules off the internet. The mall even offers complementary shuttles for tourists to pick you up, all you need to do is contact 97144234666 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can follow Dubai Outlet Mall on Facebook, Twitter or even join their blog for fresh hot news, but mostly enjoy a new way of safe shopping.
