February 11, 2015 | By RetailME Bureau

Al Waha Mall in Al Ain, the latest shopping centre developed by Trueway Investment and Properties, a mall development and management division of K M Trading Group, is set to open its first phase in May this year, with major portions of the mall opening by August 2015. The phase one of the 207,000 sqft GLA mall, located in Al Qattara, will open with a hypermarket – Safa Hyper, a home-grown brand of K M Trading Group.

The mall is positioned as a community mall catering to the needs of the Al Qattara residents and its neighbourhoods such Hilli and Jimi. “Although the mall’s immediate catchment areas, besides Al Qattara, are Hilli and Jimi, it is strategically located with only 15 minutes’ drive from CBD,” says marketing manager Shelley Francis.

Apart from Safa Hyper, the mall’s other major anchor will be K M Trading Aspirations – a department store. “The leasing deal with a well-known home furnishing concept is already finalised, while negotiations are on with popular midmarket fashion and lifestyle and F&B brands that would complement the lifestyle of the areas residents,” adds Francis.

Apart from its major anchors, the mall houses a total of 186 stores. The mall’s ground floor will house the Safa Hyper, along with 19 other stores. First floor provides space for 66 stores, while on the second floor, in addition to KM Trading Aspirations department store, there will be 49 other stores. The third floor is devoted to fun, food and entertainment, along with cinemas and children’s play area.
