Just to let you know that the Dubai Shopping Festival is over.


February 16, 2009 11:46 by

The Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) is over. Yes, the gaudy lights on the streets will be removed and retailers will have to stop trying to tempt buyers with bargains.

It isn’t as though many shoppers were tempted during the festival anyway.

A poll we conducted earlier this month showed that a majority of the voters, 42 percent, said “No”, they haven’t gone shopping this DSF, and 24.5 percent said that they are waiting for prices to decrease further.

Geoffrey Melford, in a comment to our earlier story had said, “Only naive tourists and depressed emotionally deprived shopaholics will shop in Dubai and frequent malls.”

“I consider DSF the Dubai Spending Festival and the Dubai Silly Festival,” he added.

Do you agree that the festival has lost its value?
