Majid Al Futtaim’s shopping mall, City Centre Ajman is celebrating an important milestone with the completion of its multi-phase redevelopment. With this redevelopment exercise, the shopping mall has transformed from a community centre to a regional shopping and lifestyle destination housing a diverse mix of 130 international brands and restaurants.

As part of an ongoing AED643 million enhancement project, the redevelopment offers visitors with an upgraded shopping and leisure destination. The second stage has seen the mall refine its offering and diversify its retail mix to include a dedicated home category, while adding fashion and lifestyle brands and all-new dining offerings. The improvement has also seen finishing touches added to the new wing as well as the enhancement of public areas and mall facilities.

Commenting on the redevelopment, Fuad Sharaf, managing director of UAE, Oman and Bahrain shopping malls under Majid Al Futtaim Properties, said, “This redevelopment emerges from us listening to our customers and understanding that they expect more from malls in their community. We want to provide them with a single destination that satisfies the wants and needs of their busy modern life. With the added contemporary design, increased convenience and retail mix, the mall’s transformation reiterates the promise that City Centre Ajman, like all Majid Al Futtaim properties, exists ultimately to create great moments for everyone, every day.”

The list of new brands at City Centre Ajman includes popular home décor department stores Centrepoint and Home Centre, making their debut in the emirate, alongside fashion brands LC Waikiki, H&M and MAX. In addition, there are cafés such as Tim Hortons, Starbucks and Café Nero and electronics retailer Sharaf DG. The restaurants at the mall include Gazebo, Pizza Express, Nando’s and Mado.

What more, City Centre Ajman is also on track to uplifting the economy of Ajman and the Northern Emirates by creating 250 new jobs in the emirate.
