The Sharjah Shopping Promotions, organised by the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI), ended with sales reaching over AED 200 million, marking a 30 per cent increase from previous records.
Ibrahim Rashid Al Jarwan, Director of Economic Relations and Marketing at SCCI, stressed that this year’s Sharjah shopping promotions were successful by all standards, marked by high sales and a strong turnout from visitors and tourists from around the world. This was due to the Chamber’s innovative approach in partnership with strategic partners to enhance the experience of residents and visitors during the event.
Al Jarwan attributed the uniqueness and continued success of the Sharjah shopping promotions to the strong partnership between the government and private sectors in Sharjah.
For his part, Jamal Saeed Bouzanjal, Director of the SCCI Media Department, stated that the success of this year’s promotions is yet another testament to the Chamber’s continuous efforts to drive economic development in Sharjah through programs and initiatives, adding that the event was a prime opportunity for local shopping centers and shops to grow their businesses and boost revenue.
Meanwhile, Hana Al Suwaidi, Head of the SCCI’s Festival and Shows Department, said that during the Sharjah Shopping Promotions, the Emirate was alive with a mix of entertainment, festivities, and unique events, solidifying its reputation as a family-friendly tourist destination that caters to all family members’ needs.
The promotions were concluded with a city-wide event at the Sahara Centre, with a celebratory ceremony. Mohammad Qasim Hassouni from Iraq was the envy of all as he drove away with a brand-new Infiniti car, the grand prize of the final draw.
Five lucky individuals were awarded tourism packages in the raffle draw, and 13 more received vouchers ranging from AED 2,500 to AED 10,000. Shopping was elevated to new heights with discounts reaching up to 75 per cent on top international brands, making for a truly memorable experience.
