Fujairah City Centre & City Centre Sharjah to host unique ‘Pick-Your-Pack’ summer promotion to maintain the momentum this summer
The retail landscape in the northern emirates is growing at a healthy pace, as Fujairah City Centre and City Centre Sharjah have both reported double digit increases in visitation this year. Weekends at Fujairah City Centre in particular have witnessed positive growth, with a notable 15% increase in traffic as a result of greater number of tourists and the opening of VOX Cinemas. City Centre Sharjah has seen a 7% increase in overall footfall over the same time last year, and a strong 11% boost in sales. City Centre Sharjah also recently announced that it received more than 18,000 tourists on its shuttle buses in Q1 this year, and is on track to meet its goal of 45,000 tourists for 2013 – almost double the amount in 2012. With summer in effect, Fujairah City Centre and City Centre Sharjah have joined hands to create a unique shopping extravaganza called ‘Pick-Your-Pack’ to maintain this positive growth throughout the season.
“Summer is a time to spend with family, and we are celebrating the importance of this through the variety of family-focused prizes in the ‘Pick-Your-Pack’ campaign,” said Majed Al Fahim, Senior Manager for Fujairah City Centre. “We welcome a number of families to all of our malls in the Northern Emirates and a growing number of tourists on the weekends, and are excited to have a summer promotion specifically tailored to family and to thank frequent shoppers for their ongoing support.”
“We are pleased to announce the positive increase in sales and footfall in the first half of this year at City Centre Sharjah, and we are looking forward to welcoming additional visitors this summer,” said Abudulhamid Bukhashem, Senior Manager for City Centre Sharjah. “To thank our loyal shoppers, the summer bonanza will feature a wide range of specials, discounts and unique prizes, providing unmatched shopping deals and chances to win a summer experience of their choice.”
The ‘Pick-Your-Pack’ promotion provides customers with three unique winning opportunities. From June 1st to 30th any purchase of AED150 from a wide range of retail stores at Fujairah City Centre and City Centre Sharjah entitles shoppers the chance to win the daily draw and pick one of three amazing summer packages. Adding to the excitement, a grand prize draw will be held, and the lucky winner can choose from a Motorhome, a living accommodation combined with a vehicle engine equipped with amenities found in a house such as kitchen and living room, a brand new Audi Q7 or gift cards worth AED 300,000, as a prize.
Every day for the entire month of June, Fujairah City Centre and City Centre Sharjah will be giving away the choice of one of three daily summer packages: ‘Traveler Package,’ perfect for friends or couples and offers two tickets to any destination via Air Arabia with a gift card worth AED500; the ‘Family Fun Package,’ which offers a two night weekend stay at the Sheraton Hotel - Mall of the Emirates for two adults and two children with dining vouchers worth AED500 as well as four VOX Gold movie tickets; and the ‘Kids Package’ which offers a Magic Planet card loaded with AED 500, entry passes for four to Ski Dubai’s Snow Park and Penguin Encounter and four movie tickets to VOX Cinemas.
Lucky shoppers can choose how they want to spend their holidays, from travelling to a favourite summer destination, spending a weekend at a five-star hotel, filling a range of fun activities and summer entertainment for the kids, grazing through the desert dunes with a motor home or a brand new four-wheel drive, or just simply load up the savings for a day of indulgence.
Residents can enjoy extended shopping hours at Fujairah City Centre with the mall open an additional hour to 11:00pm on weekdays and to 12:00 midnight on weekends. City Centre Sharjah also offers more shopping opportunities with opening hours to 12:00 midnight on weekends.
