Boost for Fujairah retail sector with 160-shop mall

A new mall with 160 shops is set to open in Fujairah in September as the emirate expands its retail sector. About 80% of the mall is already leased. It will feature a Géant hypermarket and shops from the retail groups Azadea, Chalhoub Group and Apparel. The complex also has a four-star Millennium Hotel, which is already in operation. The mall will have traditional Arabic goods, fashion stores such as Mango and Beverly Hills Polo Club, sporting names such as Athlete’s Co, and children’s shops that include Babycentre and The Children’s Place. Other brands present include Damas les Exclusives, Nine West, Aldo, Charles & Keith and Skechers. Fujairah’s economy has been flourishing in recent years, with economic output growing 7.7% in 2014 to reach Dh14 billion from Dh13 billion.
