In a city populated with malls and shopping centres, one can’t seem to get enough of discounts. Just a few days after the sales at the annual Dubai Summer Surprises ended, it was announced that more than 50 designer labels are clearing their excess inventory and giving away heavily discounted shoes, bags, clothes in one venue this month.
Organisers of the Big Clearance Sale announced that several premium brands have enlisted to offer more than 80 per cent off on a wide array of merchandise. For the second time this year, the mega sale will be held for three days starting August 24, Thursday, in the halls of the Dubai World Trade Centre.
A long list of statement designer labels and beauty brands await shoppers and discounted items will also include cosmetics, jewellery, skincare and fragrances. The deals can be availed of only at the venue and will not be available in stores or other locations.
In the previous edition of the Big Clearance Sale last March, thousands of bargain hunters crowded the halls of Dubai World Trade Centre, snapping up discounts from 100 top fashion, lifestyle and beauty brands.
Shoppers are also in for mega prizes, as there will be further competitions and raffles for two Renault Koleos cars and two cash prizes of Dh5,000. Entrance to the venue, however, is not free, with the entry tickets costing Dh10 per person and valid only on the day of purchase.
Doors to the Za’abeel Halls 1, 2, 3 will open at 11am. The retail bonanza is a regular fixture in Dubai’s retail calendar and organised by the Dubai festivals and Retail Establishment, an agency of the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing.
