Most of the sales in Dubai or the UAE are gimmicks every year. If these were genuine sales, then price reductions would apply to most items that people buy and not only unwanted junk, which the shops have been trying to get rid of. These so called are honey traps to attract the Bees. Once in the web, you become an impulsive buyer to buy junk (+90%) that you really do not need. A very well-tested formula that works very well in Dubai and the UAE. There are outlets which have 75-90% Sales throughout the year. Most people living in UAE would know which ones, but it's the innocent visitors who are the suckers.
