Consumers in Abu Dhabi demanded the continuation of discounts in shopping centers in the emirate, for a longer period, especially with these discounts coinciding with the seasons of Eid al-Adha, travel and summer holidays.
They explained that the percentages of discounts offered by shopping malls amount to 75%, and include clothes, shoes, bags, perfumes, electronics, phones, furniture and household items, personal care supplies and cosmetics, as well as children's supplies.
In turn, two officials expected an increase in sales by more than 30%, especially with the return of the capacity of the malls by 100%, stressing that the reductions revive store sales and meet the needs of consumers.
In detail, the consumer, Imad Al-Jamal, said that several shops in the shopping centers in Abu Dhabi offered discounts at rates ranging between 20 and 75%, and included a variety of goods, most notably clothes, shoes, bags, electronics, furniture, and decorative supplies.
He stressed that the discounts provide good opportunities to buy, especially as they are the first extended discounts in months, calling for their continuation for a long period of time to allow shoppers the opportunity to purchase, especially as they coincide with the seasons of Eid al-Adha, travel and summer holidays.
He pointed out that shops offered discounts for a few days, which lost the opportunity for consumers to purchase, especially for employees who are waiting for their salaries.

In turn, the consumer, Iman Al-Marzouqi, said that several shops within the shopping centers in Abu Dhabi offered discounts of between 20 and 70 percent, and included a variety of goods, most notably clothes, perfumes, phones, household appliances, decoration supplies, cosmetics, accessories, and children's supplies.
She stressed that the discounts are varied, and allow families to purchase the needs of Eid al-Adha, the travel season and summer vacations, which reduces their financial burdens, calling for extending the period of discounts, so that shoppers can benefit from them.
Consumer Ahmed Samir agreed on the need to extend the period of the discount season, to coincide with Eid al-Adha and the travel season, which in turn is witnessing great demand two years after the Corona virus pandemic, pointing out that the discounts of shops have reached 75%.
In addition, an official in commercial shopping centers in Abu Dhabi, Samir Asaad, said that the discounts come before Eid al-Adha, coinciding with the start of the travel season and summer vacations, to facilitate meeting the needs of consumers at reasonable prices, stressing that there is a great demand for buying family necessities.
He added that the management of shopping centers usually agrees to the shops' request to extend the periods of discounts, if desired, noting that the discounts revive store sales and meet the needs of consumers.
He expected that the shops would achieve an increase in sales during the discount period by more than 30%.
For her part, the sales official in a chain of shops in Abu Dhabi, Rina Chu, confirmed that there is a great demand from shops to participate in the discounts, expecting that shops will achieve an increase in sales by more than 30%, especially since there are several shopping seasons that met simultaneously.
Retail trade expert Davey Nagpal said that the Eid al-Adha season came this year, coinciding with the holiday and travel season, which is expected to revive retail trade, and bring benefits to shops from increased sales, and consumers to obtain their needs at reasonable prices.
Nagbal called on shops to focus discounts on goods that are acceptable to consumers, pointing out that several electronic platforms have started their reductions, which is intense competition in the interest of consumers.
