IN PARTNERSHIP: If there’s one thing we’ve missed during recent months, it’s the experience of a good day out shopping.

Of course, we’re able to get everything we need online, but the experience of getting your best girlfriends together, making a day of things, browsing for your favourite brands, then stopping off for lunch is something we’ve truly missed.

While there’s many places to go in Dubai, for those looking for a 360-degree shopping experience then Galeries Lafayette – the largest department store in Dubai – is the place to go, especially since you can head to their restaurant, Le Gourmet, for a bite to eat post-shopping session.

Whether it’s women’s fashion, jewellery, handbags, shoes, makeup, skincare and more, the upscale Dubai department store is an extension of the rich heritage its parent establishment which was founded in 1893 in Paris.


Not only is Galeries Lafayette the one-stop-shop for women’s fashion, you’ll discover an array of brands offering formal and contemporary designs for men, cool and chic looks for the kids and the most desirable decor pieces to complete your home.

And given Eid is just around the corner, it’s the ideal time to book in a trip to stock up on gifts for your loved ones and to treat yourself. In even better timing, selected items across women’s, men’s, kids and home are on sale up to 50 per cent off at Galeries Lafayette.

In addition, the luxury department store also now offers a new ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ scheme with a zero per cent interest payment plan with Emirates NBD.

Making life even easier, customers can also contact the Galeries Lafayette team via WhatsApp ShopLine (+971547921117) where purchases can be delivered right to their doorstep.
