- Participating malls reporting enthusiastic response from customers
Dubai: Dubai Shopping Malls Group (DSMG) edition of Dubai Shopping Festival celebrations has whipped up a shopping frenzy at all participating malls. In lieu of the same, the initial two draws of the DSMG raffle promotion were warmly welcomed by shoppers at Global Village, where 18 lucky winners walked away with cash prizes.
Out of the 18 lucky winners, Yousuf AlAnsari, a UAE National, entered his name for the raffle when he obtained coupons on purchase from Al Bustan Centre. Commenting on his win, Yousuf said: “This is the second time I’m winning with DSMG! Last year’s summer season I won 5000 dirhams and I’m excited to see what I win this DSF. I went shopping with my family, and this only elevated our shopping experience”.
One of the first-week raffle winners, Elenita Agno from the Philippines added by saying, “It was for shopping the weekly groceries that I won 5000 dirhams, which I still can’t believe. 15 years in Dubai and this is the first time I won. And it couldn’t have been at a better time than now, as I was saving for my son’s tuition fees. He has enrolled in an engineering college and this win has helped me a lot financially. Now every time I shop at Al Khail Gate, I have this hope will I win again!”
Another humble winner, Nysil Ak, an Indian National, shopped from Dubai Outlet Mall and won 10,000-dirham cash as part of the raffle draw. He said, “Never knew shopping for myself will win me money. I spent less when shopping and won 100 times more. I always shop from Dubai Outlet Mall, but now will shop more from there”.
The promotion which began on December 15th, 2021, will continue until 30th January of this year, offering shoppers a chance to win cash prizes of up to 1 million dirhams.
