“The entire team at the Red Sea Mall is working round the clock to understand the everchanging needs of our tenants and visitors. We have completed numerous upgrades enhancing experiences and will continue to further develop the mall experience. While the lockdown in 2020 and 2021 led to significant adjustment of consumer habits it also helped us to identify numerous opportunities that will allow us to stay ahead of the game and offer dynamic and engaging experiences for our visitors, also creating new revenue generating opportunities for our tenants,” Alawi concluded.
