Majid Al Futtaim, the leading shopping mall, communities, retail, and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia, has announced the opening of the Mall of Oman in Muscat.

The sultanate’s largest shopping and leisure destination, the Mall of Oman boasts a 9,000-sq-m Carrefour Hypermarket as part of Majid Al Futtaim package as well as the largest Vox Cinemas – complete with 15 screens – in addition to the only IMAX experience in the country, the first Gold experience in Oman, and a big Magic Planet facility featuring award-winning rides, games and attractions.

Alongside this offering, customers will get to enjoy a host of brands from the Landmark and Apparel groups. In addition, Mall of Oman will offer famous outlets such as DKNY, Nespresso, G-Shock, Homes R Us, Tavola and Al Khalili Buildex. And for those looking for dining options, they can indulge at Kitchen 35, the VIP Lounge (Gold) and Nutella, says the retail pioneer.
