City Centre Al Zahia to open in March 2021


May 11, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

City Centre Al Zahia, Majid Al Futtaim’s upcoming mall in Sharjah, will now open in March 2021. The shopping mall was supposed to open in 2020. The decision to defer the mall opening date has been taken in light of the global disruption in the retail sector due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The additional months will allow City Centre Al Zahia’s tenant partners increased time to stabilise and prepare their new stores effectively.

“From the day we open the doors of City Centre Al Zahia, our ambition is to offer a compelling retail and entertainment experience to the Northern Emirates community. This ambition is shared by all of our tenants, and as an industry leader, we feel it is our responsibility to support them in any way we can towards achieving this shared goal,” said Shireen El Khatib, CEO, Majid Al Futtaim – Shopping Malls Business Unit.

“In line with our delivery commitments, the construction of the mall has run to schedule since we first broke ground. However, in light of the global changes that have impacted the retail industry, we have taken the prudent decision to revise the opening date of City Centre Al Zahia in the best interest of our customers and tenants. We remain confident that City Centre Al Zahia will become a landmark destination in the Northern Emirates and a signature addition to the Majid Al Futtaim family,” she added.

Stretching across approximately 1.5 million sqft of gross leasable space, City Centre Al Zahia will become the largest mall in the Northern Emirates and the centrepiece of Majid Al Futtaim’s developments in Sharjah once open. The upcoming mall will provide a mix of more than 360 new and established brands, all housed within a contemporary retail environment.
