Dubai Mall delays opening

The Dubai Mall, the world's largest shopping centre, has put back its opening to November 4.

The Dubai Mall was due to open today but has been delayed to enable the owners to finish "aspects of the mall infrastructure".

A spokesperson for Emaar Malls Group, which owns the mall said: "The Dubai Mall was prepared to open as planned for October 30. However, the additional days will ensure the final touches are in place to allow our visitors to fully appreciate and enjoy The Dubai Mall experience."

"The new date further allows us to address the finishing aspects of the mall infrastructure. The Dubai Mall is a remarkable project and the efforts of our valued partners including government authorities, contractors and retailers are greatly appreciated. The Dubai Mall will achieve a successful opening on November 4, with their continued support."

The Dubai Mall is 12 million sq ft with a gross leasable area of 3.77 million sq ft. It will house more than 1,200 stores, 165 of which are new to the region.
