Ready to start shopping? The 24th edition of Dubai Shopping Festival starts on Wednesday.
From 26th December to 2nd February, more than 3,200 outlets will have over 700 brands on sale at discounts of up to 90 per cent. At 39 days, it’s the longest shopping festival yet and these are the kind of numbers that have us reaching for our wallets.
To give us even more time to shop, win and have fun, the annual month-long sale is extended by a week. What else is new for 2018/19? Weekend Surprises and Shop the Night Away have us intrigued. Popular events from last year are back too – like the 12-hour flash sales and funky Market Outside the Box.
Sales, sales, sales
Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) begins with a huge 12pm-12am sale at Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Deira, City Centre Me‘aisem, City Centre Barsha and City Centre Al Shindagha.
