Residents said they are not only hunting for good bargains and trying to make the most of shopping discounts during the festival, it is also enjoyable for the children who can go in for numerous entertainment activities.

“I don’t usually allow my kids to watch television at all times. I prefer them playing with other children, and interacting with other people. That’s why I don’t want us sitting at home all the time. Since this mall is near our home, I always take my family there and allow my kids to roam around, witness various activities and play in the children’s area. Plus, I get to look for good discounts and shop for us,” said Aribah Kamal, who was shopping with his family members Amber and Abeer and Aribah at the Al Ghurair Centre.

Not only Dubai residents, tourists from across the region said discounts and the lively atmosphere created during the festival attracted them to Dubai during this time of the year. A visiting tourist from Iran, Babak Zaheed with son Bardia Zaheed, commented, “We always come to Dubai on vacation for summer. We schedule it almost every DSS. The discounts are amazing. The mall is very lively; nothing to ask for but more and more discounts.” More info
