Dubai: Al Ghurair Centre in Dubai is to complete a Dh2 billion expansion this summer, adding an array of new shops and a world-class entertainment zone to the existing mall.

The Deira-based shopping centre, which was the first of its kind to open in Dubai more than three decades ago, will almost double its retail area with 150 additional stores and food outlets, refurbished cinemas, and a large entertainment zone featuring an indoor rollercoaster and ice rink.

The expansion is opening in stages. A five-star hotel and a luxury serviced-apartments tower opened in December. The remaining retail and entertainment zone expansion is set to open for trade in mid-2013.
