  • DSF App - For the convenience of local and foreign shoppers the organizers of DSF have developed an App, that will keep the users updated on latest offers and deals for Dubai Shopping Festival 2020. Especially for the offers like a weekend surprise that are announced 24 hours prior only.
  • Start Early - Stocks and sizes at retail shops tend to fly off, so make sure you start shopping as early as possible to find what you are looking for in your own size. In addition, mornings will have slightly less crowd.
  • Research and organize - With endless options of shops from malls, souks and pop-ups one can end up missing a good bargain while they are somewhere else. Thus research well, where you can find what, select your favorite brands and while it may sound tedious make a list of it all for a seamless and profitable shopping experience.
  • Shopping hack - The queue for the trail rooms is bound to be extremely long, play smart and wear a skive or a t-shirt over which you can try the newly found clothes for fittings.
  • Explore before splurging - With endless options to choose from do not fixate on one shop, try a few options before you start spending. Especially with things like electronics, furniture etc. check out discounts by other shops as well.
