Right next-door, Seef Mall is the place to shop until you drop. It boasts 225 retail stores of various international brands covering 21 categories of shopping from designer jewellery and clothing to value for money fashion and accessories.
Add to that 40 restaurants, cafés and food stalls and you are spoiled for choice. From the dedicated shopper to those who just want to relax and drink their coffee, Seef Mall has it all.
The gap between consumer groups has been well and truly bridged with a clever combination of high-end and affordable but quality stores. The anchor stores are Marks and Spencers, Debenhams, BHS, Zaina and Toys R Us. Also key in attracting customers are fashion stores Mango and Zara, perfumers Al Hawaj, and the two Seef Cineplexes, with 16 screens in total, offering a wide range of movies to suit all tastes, running well into the wee hours.
The mall is home to an enormously popular and well-equipped children’s play area, Magic Island, where children of all ages will find entertainment to suit. The huge soft play structure towers over the other attractions and children can lose themselves in sheer enjoyment amongst its labyrinth of passages.
The mall’s design ensures that, in spite of its size, you are never too far away from refreshment as its two food courts are located at opposite ends of the mall with cafés and restaurants interspersed en route.
Look out for Seef Mall West Expansion, which will open in the first quarter of 2007 and feature 70 high-end stores not yet represented on the island thus underpinning Seef Mall’s ethos of continually replacing old with new concepts ensuring the ultimate shopping experience.
