Al-Futtaim,has signed a joint venture agreement with the Chalhoub Group.
Singapore’s leading fashion department store
Robinsons will premiere the GCC and the Middle East region in Spring 2017..Chosen location: Festival City. John Lewis will tag along as a shop in shop department store too.
Thats pretty soon folks!
We all have wondered whats the secret deal of FC's larger part of constructions..many rumors have been circulating
( Hey, lets be frank- A shoppinistas fave thing is to speculate of exciting new things to come over a coffee)
Once, Harrods was supposed to locate at FC. But timing was bad when Mr Al Fayed sold Harrods to one of our neighboring countries. Actually he was my previous employer too back during my London days so I admit, that was a big aoch for my shopping nerve..
But all forgotten and forgiven now when Robinsons Dubai is finally joining Dubai!
Anything coming out of Singapore are well planned.. Its a power machine of creating fab artistic and inspirational interiors and merchandising.. More importantly- Getting the "right now" brands in.
Guess what? Al-Futtaim has already been in training by operating four Robinsons in Singapore and Malaysia for the Chalhoub Group..No doubt for a sucess in the GCC then!
A total of 18,000sqm for the first department store, then many to follow in the GCC.. Hmm..might not wear those stilettos for exploring their three levels then ladies..
The Robinsons department store will offer customers fashion brands for women, men, kids, beauty, home and lifestyle, food and beverages in addition to unique services.
Plus restaurants and views overlooking the Dubai Creek!
