Muscat Grand Mall (MGM), one of the leading shopping destinations in Oman, has announced a significant increase in the number of visitors this year as compared to the previous year. The e-system for tracking visitors’ numbers recorded an increase of 20% by the end of March 2018, compared to the same period last year.
Hassan Jaboub, CEO of MGM said, “Over the past few years, MGM has positioned itself as one of the most comprehensive shopping and entertainment destinations in the capital; bringing together a huge range of options for both citizen and expatriate visitors in the Sultanate. We are pleased with the recent statistics of the E-Visitor Monitoring System, which has confirmed a 20% increase in the numbers of visitors as compared to last year. This proves that we are on the right track to meet the needs of our visitors and respond to their expectations, and even exceed them.”
“The retail industry and the management of integrated commercial complexes is an art that requires a lot of effort to excel in. Our main aim at MGM is being able to influence visitors to keep returning to the mall each time. This can be achieved by renewing or adding to their experience each time, be it with a new brand joining the mall, organising recreational activities for visitors of all ages, or even through the exceptional range of offers that are present all year round. Alongside our newly launched payment system (Mazaya Grand Card), which makes it easier for our visitors to make purchases, we had also simultaneously launched a series of offers and discounts at the mall exclusive to Mazaya Grand Card holders,” he added.
In addition to the modern marketing approach at MGM, the leading brands that continue to join the Mall one after another are another reason for the increasing number of visitors. MGM in fact, only recently announced the opening of a wide range of world-class fashion and beauty brands such as the Omani brand, Latafa, the Belgian brand of LeSoie, Riva Kids, Pastel, Choice, Jorindo. Defacto, the long awaited Turkish clothing brand, will also be opening soon.
The new shops will complement popular existing stores, such as Max, Babyshop, Splash, Shoe Palace, and La Moda; retailers of perfume and fragrances like Amouage, Oud Elite, and Kalakas; jewellery store, Pure Gold; optical outlet, Paris Optics; confectionary, Royalle Chocolate; and diner/café, Cioccolat Italiani; GNC, the nutritional supplement retailer; and the mind-blowing displays of the Museum of Illusions. Additionally, the mall also saw the expansions for Carrefour and Homes R Us and the opening of VOX cinemas in the premises.
