Al Ghurair Centre, Dubai’s iconic shopping destination, is undergoing a remarkable transformation, and it’s set to take the shopping and dining experience to a whole new level. The mall, which has been at the heart of Deira since 1981, is expanding its offerings with 25 brand-new shopping outlets and a captivating food hall concept named “Flayva.”

The addition of these new units will elevate the total store count at Al Ghurair Centre to over 240. Some renowned brands have already opened their doors, like Under Armour and Giordano, while heavyweights like Nike, Converse, and a new large Sun and Sand Sports are gearing up to launch later this month. The lineup for the rest of the year includes Fila, Homebox, and more. In 2024, prepare for exciting openings like Zataar W Zeit, Brand Bazaar, and other major brands.

Al Ghurair Centre is brimming with anticipation as they expect 15 million visitors in 2023 alone. The expansion plans aim to attract even more shoppers to this beloved mall.

At the heart of this transformation is “GLITCH,” an impressive family entertainment hub, spanning 3,700 square meters. Since its opening in June, GLITCH has become a hotspot, offering over 30 interactive attractions, from a 10-pin bowling alley to soft-play areas and climbing walls. With almost 3,000 daily visitors and daily sales exceeding AED 30,000, GLITCH has already established itself as a must-visit destination. And the excitement doesn’t stop here; the Centre has plans for “GLITCH Laser” and “GLITCH Kart” in 2024, promising even more thrills.

“Flayva” is another exciting addition to Al Ghurair Centre’s offerings. This upcoming “street food” hall will feature 23 new F&B units, a blend of homegrown and international concepts, carefully tailored to the local market. With a seating capacity for almost 500 people and spanning across 3,318 square meters, Flayva is poised to deliver a culinary experience like no other.

Anwar Atari, CEO Chief Executive Officer – Properties, Commercial, and Residential, commented on these developments, “The COVID-19 pandemic brought challenging times for malls, causing significant shifts in market dynamics and deal structures. However, we are proud to say that Al Ghurair Centre has achieved the highest occupancy levels, with international and prominent local brands eager for visibility.”

He continued, “We are committed to enhancing the leisure and entertainment experiences for our valued customers. This began with the successful launch of GLITCH, one of Dubai’s premier family entertainment venues, and it will soon be followed by the introduction of an authentic street food hall, among other exciting developments, within the next 12 months.”

In essence, Al Ghurair Centre’s evolution promises an even more vibrant, diverse, and exciting shopping and dining experience for visitors, ensuring that it remains a cherished landmark in Dubai.
