Marks & Spencer in Dubai Festival City

British retailer Marks & Spencer (M&S) opened the doors to its largest store outside the UK in Dubai Festival City (DFC) yesterday, following a Dh30 million investment.
The 64,000 square foot store is more than double the size of most existing outlets in the UAE and covers two floors of clothes, home furnishings and food, but falls short of the company's 100,000 square foot flagship store in Marble Arch, Oxford Street, London.
The opening brings the total number of M&S outlets to nine in the GCC and five in the UAE. Officials of Al Futtaim Group, the franchise holders for M&S in the GCC, recently told Gulf News that approximately Dh50 million will be poured into second stores openings in Kuwait and Qatar in the next two years.
An added Dubai store on the Jebel Ali side of the city is planned for a later date.
