The Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT Abu Dhabi) has announced a citywide shopping experience to give shoppers discounts of up to 90 per cent in seven malls for 24 hours, to mark the first day of Eid.
On Monday, the DCT announced details of both the upcoming Eid Fest celebrations and the annual Abu Dhabi Summer Season: two marquee events for the emirate, aiming to attract more overseas visitors to the Capital.
Both events have been geared to provide both visitors and residents, especially families and bargain hunters, with something to get excited about, with sought-after experiences and fantastic promotional deals for all – making Abu Dhabi the place to be this summer.
The celebrations get off to a spectacular start with a 24-hour mall mega sale, featuring discounts of up to 90 percent, as part of Eid Fest celebrations.
With more than 500 stores involved, the sale will kick off at 10am on Friday, June 15, and run until 10am on Saturday, June 16.
Inspired by the runaway success of last year’s Mega Sale at Yas Mall, seven malls will participate in this year’s super sale: World Trade Centre (WTC) Mall, Al Jimi Mall, Dalma Mall, Hili Mall, Marina Mall and Bawadi Mall, with Yas Mall yet again participating.
In addition, Abu Dhabi will be marking the first day of Eid Al Fitr with a dazzling five-minute fireworks display that will light up the sky on Friday at 9pm, at Abu Dhabi corniche and Hazza bin Zayed stadium in Al Ain.
Aimed at cementing the emirate’s status as a year-round tourism destination, the mega sale will be followed by the much-anticipated Abu Dhabi Summer Season (ADSS) returning in its fifth edition between June 21 and August 18. More
