There’s a long weekend coming up in the UAE to celebrate the country’s 45th National Day, and along with those celebrations there’ll be a three-day mega-sale across the malls of Dubai.
Under this initiative, from the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), shoppers will see 30% to 90% discounts at various malls and shopping centres around Dubai. The National Day Sale, as it’s being called, will last from December 1 to 3, 2016.
Dubai is no stranger to city-wide shopping sales. The most popular one is the annual Dubai Shopping Festival, which, this year, runs from December 26, 2016, to January 28, 2017. According to the DFRE, Dubai Shopping Festival sees retail trade of around AED 15 billion during the month.
Still, the National Day sale will be a welcome initiative for Dubai residents looking to get a good deal on their Christmas shopping. Be warned, though, the whole city will be looking to take advantage of the sales, so get to the malls early to ensure a smooth shopping experience.
