UAE’s largest department store opens with a huge competition
Time Out Dubai Staff
The opening of Robinsons, set to be the largest department store in the UAE, is little over a week away, and the Al-Futtaim-owned retail giant will be bringing John Lewis with it on Wednesday March 29 as well as a swanky competition to boot.
Al-Futtaim acquired Robinsons back in 2008 and currently operates three different stores in Singapore, as well as one in Malaysia. Next week’s opening at Dubai Festival City represents the first foray out of Asia for Robinsons, and is being launched in partnership with Chalhoub Group – the luxury goods and retail giant.
To celebrate its upcoming launch, Robinsons is running a competition to find the new Mr or Ms Robinson, which will set you up with a Dhs2,000 spending spree at Robinsons, as well as a night at the Grazia Style Awards 2017 on Wednesday March 29.
To enter, head to the dedicated Ms and Mr Robinson lounge at Dubai Festival City Mall from 4pm to 9pm until Tuesday March 21, and from 5pm to 9pm between Wednesday March 22 and Tuesday 28 for a full Robinsons-ready makeover followed by your very own professional photo shoot.
If you can’t make it down in person this week, worry not, because you can enter on Instagram using the hashtag #ImMsRobinson or #ImMrRobinson – alongside your 50 word caption.
