Majid Al Futtaim completes $163m Ajman mall revamp

AJMAN, November 12, 2018

Majid Al Futtaim, a leading shopping mall, communities, retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa and Asia, said it has completed a Dh600-million ($163 million) enhancement project at its retail destination, City Centre Ajman, to boost convenience and accessibility for shoppers.

The project involved the remodelling of the 20-year-old mall wing with contemporary design and adding new parking bays and additional spots for people of determination, said a statement from Majid Al Futtaim.   

As part of the ongoing enhancement project, City Centre Ajman has added a new permanent north entrance with immediate access to Centrepoint and Carrefour.  

The new racetrack layout improves navigation for customers. Stores have been redesigned with open glass shop fronts, lux lighting and higher ceilings to exude comfort, said the top retailer.

Adding to the convenience, male and female prayer rooms have been enlarged to accommodate 150 men and 100 women, and are strategically located at the south entrance of the mall. Other wide-ranging day-to-day services for customers include nine ATMs that can be found at different corners of the mall, it stated.

Following the successful launch of its vibrant, new modern wing with top global brands and restaurants in December, City Centre Ajman has now opened its remodelled 20-year-old wing for enhanced convenience and accessibility for shoppers, said a top official.

"Customers who have been visiting us for many years will see the transformational change in design made to enhance the shopping experience at City Centre Ajman," stated Abdulhaid Bukhashem, the senior mall manager.

"We’ve renovated our 20-year-old wing to bring it at par with our new extension, with a modern design and racetrack architecture which allows our shoppers to access their favourite brands with ease," he noted.

"The new design seamlessly connects the existing mall to the new extension, from the Carrefour corridor to the new 900-seater food court. The mall has also expanded its carpark, which now boasts 2,200 spaces and has added more priority parking spots for people of determination," he added.

City Centre Ajman continues to expand its diverse retail mix with the launch of new brands, including Samsung, Shoexpress, Mumuso, G2000, Al Jaber Optical, Etam – Paris, Aldo Accessories and Vincci.

The mall also brings cuisines from all over the world, such as Kababji Grill, American fast food chain Popeyes and Jelly Belly. Shoppers can look forward to the opening of many more stores later this year, including Nayomi, Athlete’s Co and Pierre Cardin.

"We’ve also added more convenience-based services and expanded our parking facility near the anchor stores," added Bukhashem.-TradeArabia News Service
