In light of the UAE government’s decision to close all commercial centres for a renewable two-week period, Aldar Properties has taken the decision to adhere to this directive a day earlier than required, and close all malls operating under its retail portfolio, effective today (March 24).
This includes Yas Mall, World Trade Center Abu Dhabi (WTC), Shams Boutik at Al Reem Island, and Al Jimi Mall and Remal Mall in Al Ain.
However, supermarkets, hypermarkets and pharmacies are excluded from the closures and will remain open during the period, while F&B outlets will be restricted to home deliveries only, as instructed by the government, said the statement from Aldar.
This move is in line with Aldar’s commitment to support all initiatives announced by the Government, which continue to prioritise the health, safety, and wellbeing of all people living in and visiting the UAE, stated the developer.
Aldar said ensuring the health and safety of its customers, communities, staff and partners remained the utmost priority for the company.
The company will continue to work closely with all relevant authorities to ensure the effective implementation of all directives issued by the government, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
