House of Fraser to open in Abu Dhabi



House of Fraser’s second international store will open in Yas Mall in November.

Brought by Aldar Properties, in partnership with Retail Arabia, this will be the UK-based department store’s second location in Abu Dhabi and worldwide, after its first store at the World Trade Centre in Abu Dhabi opened last year.

“We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Retail Arabia as we continue to bring unique retail experiences to Yas Island and the wider Abu Dhabi retail landscape. We are particularly pleased to see House of Fraser’s continued expansion in the UAE,” says Mohammed Al Mubarak, chief executive officer of Aldar Properties.

Spreading across 110,000 square feet, the department store will showcase products from numerous brands from the beauty, jewellery and fashion industry.

“House of Fraser at Yas Mall will give customers a new shopping experience as we roll out our new exciting concept and will be home to a range of international brands launching for the first time in the UAE,” explains Nabil Daud, CEO of Retail Arabia International.

Within Yas Mall, Aldar Properties is also partnering up with Chalhoub Group to open the region’s largest department store, which will span across 200,000 square feet.

“We believe that Yas Mall is the perfect place for us to be launching a new and exciting store concept to market and showcase a selection of international design houses. We look forward to revealing more details over the coming months,” says Patrick Chalhoub, chief executive officer of Chalhoub Group.

Head of its opening in November 2014, Yas Mall is already 95 per cent committed.
