This is our 4th store to be opened in the Abu Dhabi area, a place where we see tremendous potential, with 12 stores in total in the UAE. Being the capital city and a known economic hub, we see an increase in demand for the latest consumer electronics products, which we are committed to delivering to our customers through a premium personalised in-store experience. Yas Mall is a landmark in Abu Dhabi, and we are proud to be located in an exclusive retail destination that offers bespoke customer experiences.”
“We believe that brick-and-mortar stores continue to play a significant role in providing authentic shopping experiences to customers, especially in our efforts to build closer relationships with them and patronise our products. The opening of the new outlet will be followed by the availability of an e-commerce version of the store, giving our customers the full omnichannel experience,” he added.
Dakir pointed out that the GCC region’s growing demand for electronic goods has prompted the company to expand its presence. He revealed that four more ECity outlets will soon open across various strategic locations in the UAE in 2021.

In fact, the opening of this new outlet at Yas Mall demonstrates our confidence in the economic growth of the region and is also a sign of our commitment towards delivering top quality service for our retail customers,” Dakir concluded.
