The sprawling Dubai Outlet Mall is set to become even bigger with a new extension plan that will make it the world’s largest outlet mall. The Dubai-Al Ain road mall’s new extension will be ready to welcome the public by the end of 2022, which means thrifty Christmas shopping is something the city’s savvy bargain hunters can look forward to.
Known for cut-rate discounts on designer labels, high street brands, and factory outlets of streetwear and electronics, the Dubai Outlet Mall is a massive mall on the city’s outskirts (E66) that you can easily spend a whole day in. After the new extension open, mall trawlers will have an astounding 3.8 million square feet of space to shop around in.
Currently, Florida’s Sawgrass Mills (standing at 2.7 million sq.ft) is the world’s largest outlet mall. That honour will go to the Dubai Outlet Mall once the new extension opens its doors.
Are we surprised that Dubai has another superlative structure to add to its list of record-breaking achievements? It’s second nature to us now.
More entertainment spaces will be added
But there’s still reason to celebrate as this new extension not just supersizes the mall but also adds new entertainment options such as a cinema, a megamarket, and a community space. This effectively multiplies Dubai residents’ options of things to do over the weekends, so hurray!
Big international brands are set to occupy the new extension. The Rivoli Group, Via Milano and Mario Barutti are some of them. At the moment, a stonking 240 stores already exist within the Dubai Outlet Mall with big brands such as Burberry, Balmain, Nike, DKNY, Kenzo, Aigner, New Balance and more.
A bargain hunter’s paradise
Since it opened in 2007, the Dubai Outlet Mall has brought over 1,300 brands under one roof, making it one of the go-to shopping hubs in the city for residents and tourists alike for quick and convenient shopping sprees.
They’ve also got special discounts of up to 90% on Mondays on select participating brands. So if you’ve got the Monday blues, you know where to head for some retail therapy.
