Wallets at the ready…

Missed out on the retail action during last weekend’s Dubai Super Sale?

Not to worry, bargain hunters – you don’t have long to wait until another shopping bonanza invades the city’s malls.

It’s just been announced that this year’s Dubai Summer Series will kick off on July 1, promising 43 days (yes, six whole weeks) of sales and special offers.

Now in its 20th edition, the city-wide shopping festival will see discounts of up to 75 per cent across thousands of products, including fashion, technology, jewellery and homeware.

This sale is not your usual fill-your-shopping-bags-as-fast-as-you-can retail rodeo, either.

Shoppers will have the chance to take home prizes, and there will be plenty of family-friendly entertainment in the malls to keep the little ones occupied, including concerts, cartoon character performances, and other activities.

The shopping festival is officially organised by the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment, an agency of the Dubai Tourism – the same people who were behind the bumper sale earlier this month.

Remember, this will be the last big retail event until the National Day sales in December... so you might want to take advantage of the bargains (or at least the free air-conditioning) while you still can. See you at the mall?
