Seven major shopping malls in Dubai will open their doors to visitors for 48 hours straight as part of Eid Al Adha celebrations.

The all-day, all-night shopping bonanza will take place on the first two days of Eid Al Adha in October with The Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates, Deira City Centre, Mirdif City Centre, Dubai Festival City Mall, Arabian Centre and Lamcy Plaza taking part.

All seven malls will also offer extended shopping hours during all the other days of the Eid in Dubai between October 10-19 from 10am to 2am while dining hours will be until 3am.

More malls - Ibn Battuta Mall, BurJuman, Dubai Outlet Mall, Al Ghurair Centre and Mercato - will also operate on extended shopping hours during Eid.

Helal Saeed Al Merri, director-general of the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), said: “The success of the inaugural Dubai 24 Hours shopping experience last year — as reflected by the positive feedback from residents, visitors and our partners in the retail sector — was an endorsement of the contribution that retail makes to the city’s economy.

“Once again it will add to the overall holiday experience for the large number of families who are expected to be in Dubai during this year’s Eid Al Adha celebrations,” he added in comments published by Gulf News.
