Bloomingdale's, the Dubai Mall
Bloomingdale's is a name etched into the history of retail. This true American icon first launched in New York City all the way back in 1872 – an early pioneer in what would become known as the department store. Since then, it has established itself firmly as a recognised and loved retail brand.
It was not until 2010, however, that Bloomingdale's finally made an international move, setting up its very first overseas store. And what better place to begin its global expansion than the new international shopping capital, Dubai. Bloomingdale's Dubai is now an anchor store within one of the city's most impressive shopping centres, The Dubai Mall. Bringing its upmarket, first class shopping experience and an extensive range of brands, this is a department store that's a cut above the rest.
The store is split between two locations within The Dubai Mall. The main, three level store specialises in quality clothing, shoes and accessories. The second location, Bloomingdale's Home store, is just a short distance away within the mall, and features the incredible Street of Shops – a range of speciality outlets within the store offering cupcakes, ice cream and fragrant teas, as well as Arabic and antique products.
Bloomingdale's Dubai has imported the best of it's US stores, and is particularly inspired by its original and flagship location on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan – including bright, clean spaces and a fresh, welcoming shopping environment. However, it has been respectful of the local culture and aesthetics as well. Inside the store you can spot the Arabic influences that have been subtly incorporated into its design, delivering a nice international twist and adding to the modern, cosmopolitan ambience of the store.
Amid the store's fabulous décor – its signature black and white check design, its hand-blown glass chandeliers and its impressive indoor fountain – you will find a wealth of high quality products. As with the store's design, its range reflects an international perspective too, showcasing some of the world's most respected brands. From both men's and women's clothing and accessories to beauty products, fine jewellery and much more besides, Bloomingdale's offers a rich, satisfying shopping experience.
