Yesterday (Saturday March 21) Emaar announced that The Dubai Mall was partnering with online retailer noon.com to open a virtual store.
Shoppers will soon be able to head to their favourite shops online, as part of the initiative that aims to support both retailers and the community “to address the unprecedented challenges from the COVID-19 situation”.
It promises to serve as a “free, safe, cash-less and convenient” service, which will run daily.
