The first Robinsons store in the GCC and Middle-East was opened at Al-Futtaim’s Dubai Festival City Mall on 28th March 2017. The Department store will offer a large selection of categories including fashion brands for women, men, kids, beauty, home and lifestyle. There will be restaurants and other unique services in store. The new Dubai location is said to be the largest department store in the Middle East, spread across three levels and 200,000 square feet, with more than 600 brands. Ninety of these fashion and beauty brands are exclusive to Robinsons, including a 15,000 square-foot homeware section from upmarket UK brand John Lewis. The Department store has lush vertical gardens climbing up all levels. There’s also a new Wild & The Moon juice bar, where you can grab a matcha latte and chill out amongst the greenery after your shopping spree.
Al-Futtaim is familiar with Robinsons, as it acquired Robinsons in 2008 and already operates three stores in Singapore and one in Malaysia.
