There’s going to be a massive sale in Dubai this month



If you’re thinking about changing up your wardrobe for summer then you should wait. Seriously, wait until May 18 because there’s going to be a massive super sale in Dubai [insert excited dance emoji here].

From May 18 to May 20, select retail and electronic stores across the city will be offering 30 to 90 percent discounts on a number of clothing and electronic items as part of Dubai’s three-day Super Sale.

And while the list of brands and stores taking place is yet to be announced (we’ve been told it will be released imminently), we’re sure that the 72-hour shopping extravaganza will have discounts on all the items you need to update your wardrobe for your holidays.

Aside from clothing, shoppers can expect to save a ton of money on electronic items which if previous sales are any indication includes everything from washing machines, TVs, mobile phones and tablets.

So, in short, the sale organised by the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE) is the answer to all your summer travel needs.

We can just picture it now. The sweet sight of sale signs, the occasional temper tantrum, the evitable shoulder shove and of course the infamous “I saw it first” argument… memories (Joanne, if you’re reading this, we’re sorry for shoving you last summer but we really did see the red strapless dress first).

Speaking of memories, we’ve gathered a list of tips and advice learnt from past experience to help you make the most of this glorious sale, enjoy.

1. Check the clothing rails in the changing rooms.
If you’re looking for a popular size, there’s a good chance that there’ll be at least one item hiding in the dressing room.


2. Bring water, a lot of it.
Hydration is key to surviving the many hours that you’re bound to be spending in the mall.


3. Bring support.
You’re gonna need someone to wait in line for you, and by line we mean the line at the changing room, cashier and in some cases the entrance.


4. Save.
Now this may sound obvious but we’re sure that we’re not the ones who have spent most of our hard earned pennies on brunch and as a result find ourselves eating Roman noodles just 10 days after getting paid.


5. Do your homework.
If you’re thinking about buying electronics, know the exact brand and model you’re after because there’s a pretty good chance that it won’t be there when you come back.


6. Bring headphones. 
There’s gonna be a ton of kids (some of which will be crying) and with all sales the occasional argument.
