Dh400-million Fujairah City Centre opened its doors today with more than 100 stores ready for shoppers on day one.

The new centre introduces a diverse mix of new and internationally renowned brands, plus state-of-the-art entertainment and a wide range of food and beverage options to the UAE’s East Coast. Following special VIP tours for Fujairah’s government and guests, thousands of shoppers are expected to visit the mall in its first week of opening to experience amazing performances, fireworks, and other exciting family entertainment activities, while enjoying special in-store offers.

Majid Al Fahim, Senior Mall Manager for Fujairah City Centre, told Emirates 24l7 last month that Fujairah City Centre “will create over 1,200 permanent job opportunities once open, contributing to the long-term sustainability of the surrounding community. The mall will boost the economic landscape of the emirate through job creation and by attracting retail, development and tourism opportunities into Fujairah.”

Fujairah City Centre is the sixth strategic shopping mall in the UAE for Majid Al Futtaim Properties and the company’s 11th mall in the region. Today’s milestone marks Majid Al Futtaim Properties’ continued effort to introduce integrated lifestyle concepts into growing communities across the Middle East and North Africa.

“For more than two decades, Majid Al Futtaim Properties has delivered world-class shopping and tourist destinations to the Middle East, pioneering the concept of pairing premium retail brands with compelling leisure attractions,” said Peter Walichnowski, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim Properties.

“Fujairah City Centre embodies this vision and reflects the customer-centric approach and design excellence of the ‘City Centre’ brand. This premium development reflects the growing residential and tourism aspirations of Fujairah, creating more than 1,200 jobs for the community, and highlighting the further customer demand for shopping and entertainment destinations in the UAE.”

Fujairah City Centre was completed six weeks ahead of the original target opening date, with 99 per cent of its 105 retail stores and food and beverage outlets trading on the first day.
