March 6, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

Majid Al Futtaim opened My City Centre Sur, its first community mall in Oman today (March 6). With an investment of OMR15.2 million, My City Centre Sur is expected to create more than 4,000 direct and indirect job opportunities in the surrounding area.

“Majid Al Futtaim is committed to delivering an unrivalled retail experience to emerging communities in Oman, and the opening of My City Centre Sur achieves a major milestone in our investment strategy for the Sultanate,” says Ghaith Shocair, CEO – Shopping Malls, Majid Al Futtaim – Properties.

“As a company focused on the needs of the communities we serve, My City Centre Sur enables Majid Al Futtaim to increase the convenience and choice in retail, dining and entertainment for Oman’s residents and tourists. In addition, we are fostering economic growth and diversification, enhancing job creation, and delivering on our vision to create great moments for everyone, everyday,” he adds.

Located on Sur’s main commercial road, My City Centre Sur is a highly accessible new landmark in one of Oman’s fastest-growing coastal cities. With more than 50 retail outlets across 177,605 sqft and 484 parking spaces, My City Centre Sur will serve as a fully integrated retail, dining and leisure destination that is a new community hub for people to meet and connect.

My City Centre Sur includes a Carrefour Hypermarket and Magic Planet family entertainment centre alongside a considered mix of leading brands in fashion, jewellery and cosmetics – including Centrepoint, Max Fashion, Pure Gold, Kryolan and The Body Shop. The mall offers dining options such as Mersal, Razmazaan, Gloria Jeans Café and a range of food court choices, as well as services including a money exchange, telecommunications providers and pharmacies.

Sustainability was a key factor in the mall’s development, with an environmentally-friendly design and innovative architectural details that underscore Majid Al Futtaim’s goal of becoming ‘Net Positive in Carbon and Water by 2040’.

My City Centre Sur is part of Majid Al Futtaim’s strategy to increase its total investment in Oman to OMR705 million by 2020, which includes forthcoming destinations City Centre Sohar and Mall of Oman. Majid Al Futtaim’s investment in Oman’s retail, leisure and entertainment infrastructure supports the country’s National Strategy for Tourism 2040, which targets a 6% rise in the contribution of the tourism sector to GDP, and a near doubling of visitor numbers to 5 million annually.
