Retailer expects 60% uplift from Dubai Shopping Festival

Dubai retailers are witnessing a positive upturn in business as a result of the current shopping and entertainment festival taking place in the emirate.

Neelesh Bhatnagar, director of Oasis Centre, praised Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) as a globally renowned event, noting that it produces a strong uplift in business activity as tourists and Dubai residents seek to make the most of the bargain deals and shows on offer.

"The weekend just passed has seen a surge of both footfalls and sales," he told Emirates 24/7.

"We expect a further surge as the pay week is approaching and shoppers get more dispensable income in their hands. We expect DSF 2011 to be 20 per cent up from last year and more than 60 per cent up from a normal month."

Meanwhile, Eisa Adam Ibrahim, general manager at the Dubai shopping centre BurJuman, also reported that customer footfall had been "very encouraging so far".

DSF 2011 runs until February 20th.ADNFCR-2019-ID-800395380-ADNFCR
