Dubai is the fourth-most attractive city in the world for international retailers, says research by global property firm CB Richard Ellis. The city follows London, Paris and New York, and according to the report, retailers are lured here because of the double-digit sales growth in recent years, and the expanding retail space.
CB Richard Ellis surveyed 280 retailers from 67 countries, and 46 percent had stores in Dubai. “It is a market to be reckoned with,” says Mark Morris Jones, the director of retail with CB Richard Ellis.
