Deira City Centre

Deira City Centre in Dubai is the most visited Mall. It is located very conveniently in the older part of the city on cross road between Sharja, Bur Dubai and the Airport. It is one of Majid Al Futtaim's Group mall chains and was the first to open and until now, is the most popular. It is a popular shopping, entertainment and leisure complex with 2 levels. It has over 1.2 million sq. ft. of retail selling space, with over 300 shops and 6,000 free car-parking spaces. Similar to all of the City Center chains, Deira City Center houses the popular hypermarket Carrefour (previously known as Continent). It also houses an 11-screen Cinestar Cinemas , Bin Hendi Avenue, 11-storey office tower, Magic Planet (leisure family complex), and the Sofitel City Centre Hotel and Residence.
Popular Retail Outlets are Debenhams, Plug-ins, Woolworths, Paris Gallery, and Virgin Megastore, Zara, Massimo Dutti . Majority of shops and stores are offering middle range of products.
Deira City Center is a daily routine casual shopping experience: need something - stop at the Mall. The Carrefour is the most visited. All those is not welcomed in the Middle East you can see women in short skirts or guys in shorts, slippers become common. Supermarket trolleys are allowed up to the parking under. Usually is crowded and during the weekends overcrowded. My favorite timing for shopping there is in the mornings of the week days, as it is quieter. For more details continue here.
