WE CAN’T BE alone in loving January sales, can we? It seems not, as the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi has launched a fantastic series of money-saving events across the capital’s magniàcent malls and super shops.
Yas Mall, the biggest in Abu Dhabi, is one of 18 malls taking place in the six week event, which started on December 26. There are more than 650 shops involved, some with offers of up to 90 percent off.
It’s called Retail Abu Dhabi (RAD) Season and will run until February 5. It’s also going by the name Really Awesome Deals, which is a lot more fun, we think.
As well as Yas Mall, the discounts are available at The Mall at World Trade Center Abu Dhabi, Al Jimi Mall in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi Mall, Deeràelds Mall and loads more, and as well as the slashed prices, there are also chances to win prizes every day, Dhs100,000 each week and a grand prize of Dhs500,000.
All you have to do is spend Dhs200 in one of the participating stores to be in with a chance to win.
There are also loads of events happening in Abu Dhabi during RAD Season, such as the HSBC Abu Dhabi Golf Championship and Red Bull Air Race, and many of them are offering discounts on tickets thanks to the event.
Hotels are also offering discounts throughout RAD Season. Some of the properties taking part include Al Raha Beach Hotel, The Ritz-carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand
Canal and Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi.
Organisers also say there will be a reward scheme in place, which means when you take part in any of the offers you’ll earn points that will result in rewards for you.
