The shopping experience at City Centre Sharjah got more vibrant with the opening of its extension, which boasts 22 new lifestyle brands and family restaurants.

A Majid Al Futtaim mall, City Centre Sharjah’s AED260 million revamp to transform into a regional retail and entertainment destination where families can gather to shop, eat and unwind is nearly complete.

The mall has not only increased in size, from a gross leasable area of approximately 406,100 sqft to 553560 sqft, but has undergone an entire interior and exterior facelift that is set to elevate the customer experience.

The mall’s contemporary design features a skylight ceiling and a redesigned entrance that allows natural light in, creating a warm and inviting ambiance for shoppers. Adding to the convenience and accessibility for customers, the parking facility has grown from 700 to 1,426 spaces, as well.

“City Centre Sharjah has evolved and transformed to meet the changing expectations of our customers. We began as a community mall, serving the day-to-day needs of this densely populated area of Sharjah, and are proud to have grown into a truly regional destination drawing visitors from across the emirate and beyond,” says Fuad Mansoor Sharaf, managing director for Majid Al Futtaim Properties, Shopping Malls (UAE, Bahrain & Oman).

A number of new brands have opened outlets in City Centre Sharjah in recent weeks, including Nayomi, Healthy Sports, Shoes for Us, Sharaf DG, Home Box, Daiso and Korean lifestyle store Mumuso, to name a few. Among the new dining outlets at City Centre Sharjah are Nando’s, Chili’s and Gazebo.

As the mall continues to transform in the coming months, shoppers can look forward to the addition of many more homeware stores and entertainment options, including Sharjah’s first 12-screen VOX Cinemas towards the second half of 2018.
