DUBAI — The highly anticipated Dubai Mall opens today, unveiling the first phase of a new retail, fashion and entertainment mecca.
At 5.6 million square feet of retail space, the mall is considered the largest in the world. There are 1,200 stores plus 160 food and beverage outlets, and the mall is expected to attract 30 million visitors in its first year. And while Dubai, like the rest of the world’s economies, is experiencing a slowdown, the mall is poised to do business in this major shopping and leisure destination.
