Shopping is more fun with friends and families, in other words, have a good time trying on outfits and sipping on coffee while snagging the best deals together. Wear comfortable slip-on and clothes and get ready to walk!

Navigating the mall with ease

Download the official Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Malls app from the Apple or Android store to access the best shopping, dining and entertainment offers and promotions directly on your phone. When you get there, connect to the free wifi with the MallConnect service and use the store locator for directions to the mall amenities, shops, and delicious dining options. What’s more, don’t let clothing and shoe sizes confuse you as you rummage through the fashion section. The app even has an apparel and shoe size converter! Don’t fret if your phone battery runs out while shopping at Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, and Mirdif. Pick up a portable mobile phone charging device from the customer service desk.

Go Hands-Free

Why lug heavy shopping bags around when you can go hands-free? At Mall of the Emirates, you can! Just drop off your shopping bags at the Hands-Free collection desks at the mall and continue your shopping spree. Your items will be securely sealed and stored along with your contact information and delivery preferences. Customers can have their bags delivered to them anywhere, anytime at the mall for free by using the mobile app or calling the collection desk 15 minutes before they finish shopping. Shoppers can also request for a home delivery using the Mall of the Emirates app at $8 for the same day and $5 for the next day.

Access a list of the mall’s unique services, such as Mall of the Emirates VIP drop-off and valet parking lounge on the website or approach the guest services desk for a guide to the closest ATMs, baby changing facilities, baby cart services and prayer rooms at the malls.

Take a break

Shopping can build up an appetite. Keep those energy levels up and enjoy some downtime at one of the malls’ restaurants or opt a quick bite to eat at the food court. Those who would like a more extended break while still being entertained can pop-in the cinemas to relax before hitting the floor for bargains again.
