iMall, the latest addition to Sharjah’s shopping malls, opened its doors to visitors on Thursday.

Located between the emirates of Sharjah and Dubai, the mall was developed by Nice Home Real Estate. It is spread over a total built-up area of 125,000 square feet.

It was initially constructed to cater to the rising demands for consumer technology gadgets, but then evolved into a value-based shopping destination that offers a wide array of fashion and lifestyle brands, a department store and core-concept IT stores operating in retail and wholesale segments.

“iMall provides unique deals across all of its product categories and incomparable leisure and edutainment [educational entertainment] experiences,” Monir Lotfi, director at iMall, said during the launch.

Some of the technology retailers located in the mall include: Goldgenie, a UK-based firm that offers product personalisation and accessorising services; the flagship home-brand retail outlet of National Store, the authorised master distributor of Canon; Moser and SanDisk; and Adawliah, a leading electronic musical equipment retailer that has a strong presence in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

Other popular mobile phone retailers include: Fone Souq by AMT, HiTech, Jasur Al Falah, Rukn Al Zahra (Variety) Computers, Marsa, Fonetel, Quick Link, Al Darah, Haran and Al Madar Al Raqmi, among others.

Joanna, the department store catering to all members of the family, also promises to be among the top attractions of the mall.

Besides retail, an entertainment area named “Game District” has been built within the mall, designed with a focus on technology, as it showcases the latest and most popular video arcade games. Visitors will go through a special vortex tunnel in iMall to enter “Game District.”

Last but not least, iMall brings a selection of dining options and is equipped with convenient and useful amenities benefiting tenants and visitors alike, such as Wi-Fi connectivity across the mall, state-of-the-art IT infrastructure and other elements to complete the experience.

A grand opening celebration is scheduled to be held on the first day of Eid Al Fitr, which follows the month of Ramadan.
