In need of a wardrobe update? Here’s why you should hit the shops this weekend…
What’s better than a whole new closet full of clothes? One that you scored at up to 90 per cent off, of course.
(Well, or one that you managed to lift entirely from Diane Kruger’s own wardrobe, but that’s harder to secure).
Luckily you could net just that – the first option, that is – from tomorrow, as part of the just-announced Super Sale set to take place in Dubai from May 18 to 20.
The three-day event will see around 500 stores offer discounts of between 30 and 90 per cent on selected items.
So, who’s taking part? There’s not yet a definitive list of stores, but we do know that the following will be slashing prices: Guess, Steve Madden, Kurt Geiger, Roberto Cavalli, Aldo, Nine West and La Senza.
Also confirmed to participate are Bossini, Carpisa, G2000, Kazar, Shoe Mart, Ecco, Giordano, Okaidi, Desigual, Charles & keith, Call It Spring, Rivoli, Hour Choice, Think Kitchen, Al Jaber Optical, Porsche Design, and Paul & Shark.
Plus, one of our favourite department stores, Galeries La Fayette, has also signed up for the Super Sale.
Shops selling fashion, jewellery, electronic, homewares, toys and more are slated to take part, and the three-day extravaganza will become a permanent fixture in Dubai’s retail calendar from this year.
“The timing is perfect for shoppers, coming early in the summer and just a few days before the start of the month of Ramadan, followed by the Eid holiday period,” said Saeed Mohammad Measam Al Falasi, executive director at Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment.
And here’s why you should get in quick…
This will be the last sale of its kind (ie with discounts of up to 90 per cent) between now and December, Al Falasi told Khaleej Times.
“This is the only time retailers can run an up to 90 per cent sale, in accordance with the new regulation launched this year,” he said about the Super Sale and National Day, adding that the only exception is if a store is closing down.
“Previously, certain brands ran such high percentage sales (up to 90 per cent) for long periods, but now that has changed. From 2017, it is only these two periods when you can see up to 90 per cent sales.”
