Dubai residents are gearing up to make the most of the last weekend before the holy month of Ramadan starts. And the Dubai Tourism made it more exciting by offering the three-day Super Sale – that begins today – and will see over 250 brands offering shoppers 30-90 per cent off on an array of merchandise such as bags, shoes, cosmetics, perfumes, fashion accessories and home furniture.
Momina has been postponing her visit to see her friend who has just delivered a set of twins. Reason: “I want to get really nice gifts for the babies and since I heard the mega sale was happening this weekend, I thought why not wait and make the most of the discounts. I can probably buy better gifts in the same amount that I would spent on their gifts without sale. So why not avail of it.”
The new citywide retail initiative will see over 1,000 retail outlets offer mega savings for shoppers with heavy discounts on a diverse range of items from local, regional and global brands, at significantly low prices.
Misbah, 22, has plans of heading straight to the mall after her classes today. “From the day I learnt about the sale in the newspapers and social media, I started making a list of things I need. Also, since it will be tough to shop in Ramadan, I will make the most of this three-day Super Sale and buy Eid gifts for family and friends now itself,” she told Khaleej Times.
Asked whether she would go all the three days to shop, Misbah said: “I will go till I am able to buy all items on my list. Also, since there will be no more clearance sales until December, I am going to make good use of it.”
The retail promotion running across Dubai offers an extensive range of choices for shoppers preparing for their summer holidays, followed by the Eid holiday period, and is part of efforts to further enhance Dubai’s position as a year-round shopping destination.
