Dubai: Consumers in UAE will be treated to another round of bargain hunting this weekend, with at least 3,000 stores across Dubai set to bring their prices down by more than half.

From August 2 to August 4 (Thursday to Saturday), budget-savvy shoppers can take up to 75 per cent off tons of merchandise, from clothes, bags, shoes to accessories, electronics and homewares, at various shopping malls.

Shoppers are assured that these weekend’s deals are going to be “epic,” as they are the highlight of the final weekend of the Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS), the annual retail event spearheaded by the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), an agency of the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism).

Discounts will apply to more than 680 brands, including GAP, Zara, New Yorker, Carter’s, Koton, Steve Madden, Ecco, Forever 21 and G2000, among hundreds of others.

Dubai’s shopaholics were earlier given the chance to shop for free today at Deira City Centre. As part of the DSS campaign, the first 1,000 visitors  who spent at least Dh200 at any two stores in the mall were able to each bag Dh200 worth of shopping vouchers.

DSS runs from June 22 to August 4 this year.
