Al-Futtaim ACE opens in Manar Mall


October 21, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

Home improvement store Al-Futtaim ACE has opened its first store in the Northern Emirates at Manar Mall in Ras Al Khaimah. It is a notable addition to the $100 million expanded and upgraded mall.

With this opening Al-Futtaim ACE now has nine stores in the UAE – four in Dubai, three in Abu Dhabi, one in Al Ain and the latest in Ras Al Khaimah.

The new 21,230-sqft store offers a wide range of products including outdoor living, gardening, homeware, paint and décor, DIY and automotive products. Additionally, the store will also feature a wide range of services including paint mixing, key cutting, home delivery and installation.

“We’re extremely pleased to be opening our first store in Ras Al Khaimah and our ninth in the UAE,” said Wayne Cohen, managing director, Al-Futtaim ACE. “This is an exciting and strategic move that brings ACE closer to customers in the Northern Emirates and will provide them with competitively priced good quality home improvement and DIY products under one roof.”

As part of its opening offers, customers will find exciting deals across all product categories from brands such as ACE, Black & Decker, Karcher, Aftron, Gardena and Homeworks, among others.

Commenting on ACE’s forthcoming opening, Benoy Kurien, CEO of Al Hamra, adds, “The introduction of a home improvement and lifestyle store has added further depth to the customer offering. Attracting a successful international retail brand such as ACE speaks volumes for the reputation of Manar Mall and underscores Ras Al Khaimah’s positions as the retail and hospitality hub of the Northern Emirates. Since announcing the expansion plans for Manar Mall we have witnessed a significant uptick in interest from potential tenants, fully justifying our decision to expand our retail offering.”

Manar Mall, developed by Al Hamra, once fully completed, will increase in GLA from just over 300,000 sqft to nearly 600,000 sqft, adding an additional 80 retail and F&B destinations. The mall is already home to renowned brands such as Carrefour, Marks & Spencer, H&M, Sephora, Next, Mothercare, Boots Pharmacy, Bath & Body Works, Chili’s, McDonald’s and KFC, together with some of the UAE’s home-grown retail brands, including Paris Gallery, Sun & Sand Sport, Damas and E-Max as well as a seven-screen NOVO Cinemas.
