Through a huge selection of global brands, family entertainment and dining options, the expansion will make Dubai Outlet Mall shopping a memorable experience for visitors. 
 
Dubai Outlet Mall pioneered the Outlet Shopping category a decade ago when it entered the UAE retail market.  

Scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2019, the expansion of Dubai Outlet Mall will see 3 million square feet added to the existing 1.1 million square feet of built up area; making Dubai Outlet Mall one of the largest outlet malls in the world.

This move and the eventual expansion of Dubai Outlet Mall also marks our intent to set new industry standards in the value shopping space; meeting customer expectations and enhancing our position as an industry leader.”
 
Dr. Adnan Chilwan, Group CEO of Dubai Islamic Bank, said: “We are pleased to be associated with the Dubai Outlet Mall expansion which will position it on a strong growth trajectory while being a distinctive addition to Dubai’s retail offering. As the largest Islamic Bank in the UAE, Dubai Islamic Bank has been actively involved in supporting the development of the retail sector in the country, and coordinating the financing of this project further cements our commitment to the sector.”
