More than 165 new retail brands will start operating in Dubai when the Emirate's latest mall opens its doors on Thursday.

Dubai Mall is introducing the new shop names as part of its 1.1 million sq ft retail offering – almost 30 percent per cent of the 3.77 million sq ft of the mall’s total gross leasable area.

With many making their Middle East debut, these retailers are entering the Dubai market for the first time or opening up their first standalone stores, mall bosses said.

Retailers opening in Dubai for the first time, or opening up their first-stand alone store cover a range of product categories including fashion, jewellery, food and beverage, home furnishings and specialty stores.

Alberta Ferretti, Joseph, Alexander McQueen, Manolo Blahnik, Agent Provocateur, Galliano, Tom Ford and Lanvin are leading names in the fashion sector.

Armani/Casa, Walentowski Gallery and Bloomingdale’s furniture offer first-time services in home furniture, while Burj Al Hamam, Fauchon Café, Rainforest Café, Café Nero, MBCo (Montreal Bread Company), Vapiano, Carluccio’s, Ping Pong Dim Sum, Roadster Diner and The Noodle Factory add to the food and beverage roster.

Bubbles & Giggles, Armani Junior, Tommy Hilfiger Kids, Kids Puzzle, Theopille & Patachou and Cacharel Paris are new names in children’s and maternity wear, while Jacob & Co, Piaget Boutique and Panerai are new entrants in the watches and jewellery sector.

Dubai Mall is one of the world’s largest shopping, lifestyle and entertainment destinations featuring a total of more than 1,200 retailers.

Yousif Al Ali, general manager, The Dubai Mall, said: “The Dubai Mall is providing a revitalising boost to the city’s retail offer by introducing over 165 new stores from around the globe.

"It was important for us to bring in names that are new to the region. Therefore, we developed partnerships with leading international retailers for opening their doors for the very first time here.

"These top names in the retail industry will further enhance Dubai’s reputation as one of the prime shopping and leisure destinations in the world.”
