Dubai Outlet Mall is the first ‘Value’ concept mall in the Middle East. Home to over 1200 of the world’s top premium and luxury labels, the mall is the ultimate value-shopping destination where you can snap up great bargains every single day.
The Dubai Outlet Mall is open 7 days a week from 10am – 10pm and up to midnight on weekends. If you’re going by car, just take the Al Ain Road (Route 66) and you will not miss it. The mall also has a shuttle bus service to many hotels in Dubai. Guests staying in selected hotel in Deira, Bur Dubai, Sheikh Zayed Road, Jumeirah and Dubai Marina areas can be transported in comfort to Outlet mall. There is also an RTA bus and loads of taxis are available beside the entrance of the mall.
I thought at first that the outlet mall was just a no fuss shopping mall that looked like a warehouse with no air conditioning and no fancy decorations but I was wrong. It looked like a proper shopping mall with nice interior and designs but the only difference is the price. You can expect to pay 30% to 90% less of the items’ original prices. This is because I was told that most of the items here are old models or the ones without all the sizes but I frequent this often and I can see a lot of new collections displayed.
With the prices already low compared to the ones in the more popular malls, the management still came up with the outlet plus card. Dubai Outlet Mall’s Outlet Plus Card costs AED25 and entitles shoppers to further discounts and value additions.Various outlets in the mall participate in this program. Shoppers can avail the Outlet Plus Card from any of the Customer Service Desks at Dubai Outlet Mall. The list of the participating outlets is provided along with the Outlet Plus Card but this card is valid only for one day.
Some of the most popular brands that are in the Outlet Mall are Calvin Klein, Burberry, Diesel, Nike, Puma, Adidas, Kenneth Cole, Aldo, Tommy Hilfiger, Sacoor Brothers, Fred Perry and a lot more.
There is also a variety of food choices in their food court and they have kiosks in the middle for the smaller brands that sell such items as cell phone accessories, jewelries, watches and snacks.
True to their slogan, ” Big Brands, Big Savings, Every Single Day “, I believe the Dubai Outlet Mall really offers shoppers huge discounts and savings for items that they can otherwise buy at the other malls at higher prices. I like going here because I can find items that I like without paying as much. And in the words of the wise Confucius, “He who does not economize will have to agonize”.
