Waitrose unveils revamped Dubai Mall store sporting new features

February 16, 2023 | By RetailME Bureau

Waitrose & Partners UAE has renovated its 45,770 sqft Dubai Mall store located on the ground floor. The revamped store sports several new features including the grocer’s first ‘Shawarma Station’ serving up marinated chicken and beef wraps.

For meat connoisseurs the store’s first-ever ‘Smoke House’ offers a wide range of smoked delicacies, including spatchcock chicken (peri-peri or lemon-garlic), hot pastrami and brisket brioche sandwiches.

The ‘Make Your Own’ salad and sandwich counters are packed with fresh ingredients for customers to create their own dishes, in addition to ready-made signature options. The store also features a smoothie and juice bar.

Homeware enthusiasts can browse the newly expanded selection of kitchen, dining and home accessories, including John Lewis products. There’s also the store’s gifting and floristry counter where shoppers can build a bouquet of elegant flowers and stems.

Those with a sweet tooth can explore the luxury confectionary counter filled with Arabic sweets, dates and chocolates. While the counter-service Waite and Rose café features its own menu, in addition to coffees, teas and fresh items provided by the in-house deli and bakery.

“Since the Dubai Mall store first opened in 2008 the team has been dedicated to listening to customer needs to offer more convenient, exciting and innovative ways to shop. The renovation is testament to Waitrose’s unwavering commitment to going the extra mile by offering the very best, responsibly sourced quality food and drinks combined with unrivalled high standards of customer service,” said Sunil Kumar, CEO of Fine Fare Foods which runs Waitrose UAE.

Waitrose has 17 shops which operate under the Fine Fare Foods license in the UAE and the Middle East.
