Dubai Outlet Mall is one of the very few working entities within the Dubailand Project, which was to be the biggest project ever made in Dubai. Dubai Outlet Mall is part of the future Dubai Outlet City, which is to be the biggest outlet complex in the world. The Dubai Outlet Mall is solely for bargain shopping; yet unfortunately, it misses the power of multiple brands that would make it an even more inviting place. Yet, it is nice to visit Dubai Outlet Mall and look around in its stores, after you have looked around in the multiple quality downtown malls of Dubai. Let us see what is worth knowing about Dubai Outlet Mall.
If you feel that, you cannot resist the urge to buy some quality brands much cheaper, and then visit the Dubai Outlet Mall, which is by far the best and cheapest shopping mall for those, who have lots of time to see through the huge variety of fashion items found over here. Dubai Outlet Mall opened a few years ago, and when you get chance to visit it, you will see it is no wonder why this place is so popular among both locals and tourists.
Outlet malls and centres are getting more and more popular everywhere. The idea of selling out the items of last season for a much cheaper price is indeed great. This is because this way, the distributors can still profit for them even if they are not brand new and not in trend. The shoppers can also profit from them, as they can find what they are looking for, at a better price but in the same quality. Outlet Malls are all over Europe and the United States, so the only question was when this trend gets to Dubai as well.
Dubai, which is hosting the best brands, selling them in the highest numbers in the world, has realised how much it can mean to have a piece of cake from the fashion outlet industry as well.
No matter its Adidas or Burberry where you would like to shop for a lot cheaper, your place is in Dubai Outlet Mall. You can find all designer brands over here and the prices of the items are less than 50% of the original price, and sometimes even 80% off the original prize. Each top international brand has a store here, where you can look for the best bargains. From accessories to home ware, there are hundreds of shops over here of all kind. Therefore, be prepared to go back to your hotel with lots of handbags.
While parents are shopping, children can have lots of fun in the theme park of Dubai Outlet Mall, called ChuckE Cheese. This is a great fun zone with many types of entertainment facilities for the children. The fun zone also includes a Bowling Club, and an Ice Rink, so no one will get bored when visiting Dubai Outlet Mall. For babies and small children, there is the Soft Play Area. If you get hungry, there are colourful displays of restaurants within Dubai Outlet Mall serving many specialities of different cuisines, from Mc Donald’s to authentic Arabic dishes, so you can surely find the dish you are looking for.
Dubai Outlet Mall’s stores mainly include last seasons and last year’s collection that are often not too far from the actual fashion to be called unfashionable, but they are relatively cheaper than the actual season’s goods. As you can imagine, within the Dubai Outlet Mall, there are mainly fashion stores, but this luckily does not close out the presence of other stores either which mean, you will find all sorts of stores within this mall, which also includes children’s toys and apparel. There are approximately 240 stores within the Dubai Outlet Mall.
In order to be more inviting for the crowd, Dubai Outlet Mall has created a day, when it’s the best to go shopping there which is called “Half Price Mondays”. This means that the stores will have a special price for one part of their total collection that they give with a 50% discount.
Some of the brands that you can find in the Dubai Mall include the following: Adidas, Armani, Azadea Group, Azarro, Bally, Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, Converse, Diesel, Esprit, Evisu, GAP, Gucci, Guess, Issey Miyake, Jil Sander, Levi’s Jeans, Mango, Marc Jacobs, Max Mara and Nike. There is a Paris Gallery within the Dubai Outlet Mall, which deals with most of the elite brands and sells a large number of accessories. It is wise to know though that most of the elite brands do not have their own label stores selling outlet items; bigger stores, such as Boutique 1 or Paris Gallery, mainly sell them.
Apart from fashion items, you can find jewellery stores within the mall too, which include Al Liali Jewellery, which is among the more popular Dubai jewellery brands. There is also a Villeroy & Boch Store within the shopping mall. Some other stores which may be interesting for the visitors include Rivoli Eyewear, Reliable Electronics, Shoe Mart and Go Sports which is the major store dealing with all sorts of sport brands for a cheaper price.
For the children and those who would like to do something more than shopping, the Dubai Outlet Mall has a nice sports and entertainment centre, which also includes a smaller ice-rink where mainly children can learn how to do iceskating. The complex also includes a Bowling parlour and here you can find a large number of fast food restaurants, such as McDonalds, Pizza Hut and other buffet restaurants offering the specialties of diverse cultures.
The most recent brands that opened their label outlet stores in the mall include Carolina Herrera, Scotch & Soda and the Stock Market Outlet, which offers multiple international brands in its collection.
If you are hesitant about the prices you see in the mall are in real lower than elsewhere, please note, that retails must sign an agreement with the management of the mall before opening which guarantees that they will sell all their apparel at least 30% cheaper than the goods’ normal price. In 2010 it has come up to do an extension to the recent Dubai Outlet Mall, but this idea has been postponed for an indefinite time.
The mall is the best reachable by taxi as it is really outside of the city. Dubai Outlet Mall is mainly worth visiting if you plan to spend the majority of your day there. There is no guarantee that you will find huge number of cheap yet outstanding goods here but it definitely gives you chance to find something a lot cheaper than it used to be. We can suggest visiting Dubai Outlet Mall for those, who have quite a lot of time to spend in Dubai.
Dubai Outlet Mall is located not far from the downtown area of Dubai, on the Al Ain Road, heading out of town. On the website of the mall, you can also find the timetable of buses heading toward the Dubai Outlet Mall, and in case someone is going by car, there is a nice map showing the key-routes toward the mall as well. Therefore, if you have some free time that you would like to spend with shopping, do not hesitate to visit Dubai Outlet Mall, you can really have some fantastic deals over here.
