Penny Pincher

We have visited the Dubai Outlet Mall twice this year already and I can see me being a regular visitor in the future. When it first opened I wasn't overly impressed with the stock and felt that alot of it was more than one season out of date. The last two visits have been more than financially worth our while though.

The Mall is located out on the Al Ain Road, it is about a 25 minute run from new Dubai, way closer if you are at the Arabian Ranches or Mirdif. There is plenty of parking and access is really easy. What I particularly like is the fact that restaurants and food court aren't mobbed and that you can walk round the Mall at leisure.

You will see every brand that you see in all the Malls here, and some new ones too, there are over 200 outlets. We were lucky today in The White Company and got a single quilt cover which was reduced from 385 dhs, to 115 dhs, an a pair of pillow cases that were 572 dhs for 56 dhs! (we have very big strange pillows on our bed). There were pillow cases starting at 10 dhs, 90% discount on their original price.

Don't expect to go up there and find an amazing choice, you won't. Shoes and clothes are in limited sizes but it definately is worth a trip out there a couple of times a year, especially if you like designer brands.

If you shop during the week, Sunday to Wednesday, take your receipt (100 dhs) to the customer services desk where you can claim a free coffee! (not sure whether this is valid during DSF)

Happy shopping!
