Macy’s to open first international store in Abu Dhabi

Macy’s will open its first department store outside of the US at a new mall development in the United Arab Emirates capital, which is scheduled for completion in spring 2018.

The US department store has agreed a 205,000 sq ft store at the £621m Al Maryah Central shopping centre in Abu Dhabi.

Bloomingdale’s, which is also owned by the parent company Macy’s Inc, will also open a 230,000 sq ft store at the mall. The flagship will be Bloomingdale’s first store in Abu Dhabi and second in the UAE.

Both anchor stores will be divided across four levels at the £621m shopping centre located in Abu Dhabi’s business district on Al Maryah Island. Al Maryah Central will connect to a recently opened shopping and dining destination called The Galleria.

Bloomingdales opened its first store outside the US in February 2010 at the Dubai Mall.
