January 12, 2015

Since opening its doors late last year, Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi's flagship retail development has been delivering a new shopping, dining and entertainment experience to the United Arab Emirates.

Within close proximity to the Abu Dhabi airport, seven luxury hotels and the landmark attraction of Yas Island (including Ferrari World, Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Links and Yas Waterworld), Yas Mall has fast establishing itself as one of the most popular malls in the region, becoming a significant leisure retail destination for guests throughout the region.

Yas Mall hopes to attract over 20 million visitors in its first full year of operating.

Talal Al Dhiyebi, Executive Director of Asset Management for developer Aldar Properties, explains "it is with immense pride that we see Yas Mall operating successfully today, transforming the Abu Dhabi retail landscape and putting the capital firmly on the international retail map.

“Retail remains an important growth sector in the UAE and particularly Abu Dhabi.

“Yas Mall answers the demand for better designed malls offering a distinctive lifestyle experience beyond shopping."

Retail Highlights at Yas Mall include:

• Largest Nike store in the region - 616 metre²
• Largest Adidas store in the region - 774 metre²
• First Brook's Brothers store in Abu Dhabi and the largest in the region - 814 metre²
• First FunWorks family entertainment centre in the Middle East - 6,500 metre²
• The only 2-level GO Sport store in the UAE - 1,818 metre²
