MAF Dubai malls set new footfall records
Dubai, September 23, 2010
Majid Al Futtaim Properties’ leading UAE shopping malls, Deira City Centre, Mirdif City Centre and Mall of the Emirates, set new footfall records as they saw 850,000 visitors over the three days of Eid.
“The strength of Majid Al Futtaim Properties’ unique shopping malls is in our ability to constantly adapt and add to the exceptional shopping experiences already on offer at our malls. The footfall numbers for our three leading UAE shopping destinations over Eid are proof of this, and our continuous innovations and expansions play an important part in achieving these records,” stated Peter Walichnowski, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim Properties.
Mall of the Emirates marked the highest ever trading weekend in its history between September 10 to 12. Almost 150,000 customers visited the mall on the Saturday alone, drawn by the opening of the mall’s new luxury wing – the Fashion Dome, and the addition of the Pullman hotel.
Mirdif City Centre also broke its own record with the highest day’s footfall since the mall’s high-profile opening in March. Crowds of shoppers poured into the shopping centre to enjoy the promotions and array of special Eid entertainment held in conjunction with the Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment.
Deira City Centre continued the trend by surpassing its previous Eid trading figures for 2009, and welcoming throngs of visitors to join the Eid festivities, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
