Shopping fever has gripped the UAE as one of the region’s largest winter bargain sales events kicked off at Expo Centre Sharjah from Dec. 24.
With price markdowns of up to 80 percent on a wide range of products from leading retailers and brands, the Winter Clearance Sale 2020 offers residents and visitors 10 days of shopping to bag huge discounts until Jan. 2, 2021.
“With consumer confidence rising and the festive season in progress, retailers are expecting a year-end shopping splurge by residents. Discounts are one of the most influential purchasing factors, and with every participating retailer offering massive markdowns on popular brands of fashion, electronics and household goods, the Winter Clearance Sale will offer the best price in town at this point of time,” said Saif Mohammed Al-Midfa, CEO of Expo Centre Sharjah.
The sale features brands such as: Sharaf DG, Jashanmal, Clarks, Aeropostale, Birkenstock, Call It Spring, Nine West, Crocs, Juicy Couture, Naturalize, Nautica, Skechers, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Dolce and Gabbana, Armani, and Yves Saint Laurent, among others.
“Physical retail has a long-standing place in the hearts of consumers, and the Winter Clearance Sale offers them the perfect chance to cherry-pick the deep discounts retailers are offering. Besides, the presence of major retailers ensures that all the popular brands in the country are available at a single place and shoppers can hunt for the best prices from thousands of offers. Some of the most generous promotional offers in recent years can be found at the Winter Clearance Sale,” said Jacob Varghese, general manager at Liz Exhibitions.
While electronics and gadgets are likely to retain their consistent retail trend, fashion, accessories, and perfumes are set to be in focus at the event. Since clothing and perfumes are two of the many categories where the touch and feel of products and sales associates’ assistance is important in the purchase process, the Winter Clearance Sale stands out from the many recent sales events that were predominantly online. The exhibition opens from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
