It also boasts a bigger mall space than any other mall or shopping center in the area. Completion of the double sizing effort was to be completed in 2011. Weekly visitors to the mall exceed 15,000 and on the weekends, over 25,000 pour in fervently.

Fun for the whole family
The Dubai Outlet Mall was the first UAE establishment to house a Chuck E Cheese. There, the kids can skate the ice rink, enjoy good food, bowl and engage in other fun experiences. The mall's 'The Dome' area is filled with a multi colored soft play area. Slides, swings and ball pools will keep the kids busy while Mom and Dad kick back with a coffee or snack. There is great news too; every Monday at the mall is Half Price Mondays at no less than 101 of their stores. So shop till you drop!
