Dubai: Christmas shoppers have a lot to look forward to this festive season.
In the run-up to Christmas Day on December 25, there are plenty of glittering gifts to shop for across the emirate. Then, the day after, the annual Dubai Shopping Festival begins.
While many expats choose to fly home this time of year — and use up any remaining days of leave from work — there are plenty of things on offer for those who stay.
For gadget fans, Jumbo Electronics is hosting a Christmas clearance sale, with knock-down prices on tablets, televisions and laptops. In rival chain Emax, shoppers who spend Dh1,500 or more receive a free gift.
To help stock up on Christmas fare, supermarket chain Choithrams is offering deals on meat — including beef topside roast and turkey — Brussels sprouts, and cakes.
Carrefour has also lowered prices on children’s toys, luggage, electronics and household appliances.
