American fashion chain Urban Outfitters, which boasts over 240 stores around the world, is opening its first shop in the GCC in The Dubai Mall, according to an announcement on its social media pages.

While it hasn’t revealed a date of opening, Urban Outfitters said on social media that the shop will open “soon”.

Instagram account @uo_arabia was set up four days and features snapshots of the new branch with the captions, “Coming soon.”

The brand said late last year that it would come to the Gulf via a partnership with local retail giant Azadea Group in 2019. The company has the franchise rights for fast fashion brands such as Zara, Bershka, Mango, Misguided and more.

CEO at Azadea Group, Said G Daher, said at the time, “As there continues to be a high demand for experiential concepts, we believe Urban Outfitters will be very well received by our customers across the MENA region.”

Urban Outfitters is offering a mix of on-trend women’s and men’s apparel and accessories, as well as beauty, intimates and a collection of handpicked vintage clothing.
