The Galleria Al Maryah Island has recorded 17 per cent increase in sales and a 10 per cent rise in footfall in 2022, versus the previous year. According to a statement, The Galleria attracted more than 34 million guests and saw the opening of 76 new stores and concepts to its collection last year.
CEO of Al Maryah Retail Company, David Robinson, said: “We are very proud of the experiences we offer the community. The team at Al Maryah Retail Company have done an excellent job of elevating these even further over the past 12 months and more, and this is reflected in the outstanding results achieved in 2022.
“This exceptional performance is a result of our continuous efforts to provide bespoke market-leading offerings at The Galleria. We continue to attract internationally renowned brands and introduce exclusive concepts to the market, while many of our long-standing brands are reinvesting in the destination to ensure they continue to attract guests with a fresh modern offer.”
Mr Robinson noted that “over the coming months more industry-leading brands will call The Galleria home, further expanding and diversifying our offering across shopping, dining and entertainment. The fact that we continue to attract such strong global names and industry game-changers to Abu Dhabi is a testament to The Galleria’s established position as a market leader, and its continued growth and success.”
The statement said that The Galleria would continue to drive the region’s fashion, dining and entertainment with the launch of several highly anticipated and exclusive concepts including luxury fashion icon Hermès, a first to market concept by Mattel, waterfront dining venues Flamingo Room, Craft by Side Hustle and more.
In addition to introducing exclusive concepts, The Galleria aims to enhance guests’ experiences this year through complimentary community programmes such as yoga and Let’s Walk, leisure spaces including rooftop parks and a full calendar of seasonal and community events, providing a free and easy way for people to connect, spend time together and live a healthier lifestyle.
The mall is owned and operated by Al Maryah Retail Company, which in turn is owned by the Mubadala Investment Company. The company posted an income of AED 122 billion for the year 2021.
