We know we’ve only just told you about the dates for Dubai Shopping Festival, but hold on because huge savings are coming for anyone who loves shopping in Dubai.
‘Tis the season for shopping in Dubai…
The city is getting ready to host a ‘3-Day Super Sale’… and that will of course translate to big savings ahead of the coming holiday rush. (Yes, Christmas shopping has already begun.)
The sale will take place at shops across town from November 23 to November 25, with participating retailers offering between 30% and 90% discounts on a range of of merchandise.
You can expect slashed prices on retailers not limited to Harvey Nichols, Galeries Lafayette, Bloomingdale’s, Debenhams, Home Centre, and pretty much most shops in malls across Dubai. Shoes, toys, homeware.. you name it.
Taxes… are… coming
Top of mind for many residents is the impending 5% VAT that will be imposed in less than two months, including on water, electricity and food. UAE residents (and tourists) will likely be spending what they can before VAT comes into effect on January 1, 2018.
