MANAMA, April 28, 2019

City Centre Bahrain, the premier shopping, entertainment and lifestyle destination in the kingdom, said it continues to expand its competitive retail offering with the opening of 22 new shopping and dining concepts in the first half of 2019.

The range of unique fashion, jewellery, and dining options complement 20 new units added in 2018 and underscores the mall’s commitment to continuously enhance the experience of its visitors, said a statement from City Centre Bahrain.

“We are committed to maintaining City Centre Bahrain’s competitive edge as the preferred shopping, lifestyle and entertainment destination in the Kingdom of Bahrain by staying ahead of our customers’ needs and creating great moments for everyone, everyday,” remarked Duaij Al Rumaihi, senior mall manager.

“By anticipating retail trends and introducing both global and homegrown concepts, City Centre Bahrain continues to raise the standard of retail offerings and evolve in line with Bahrain’s market demands, as well as those of our visitors from Saudi Arabia,” he added.

Looking forward in 2019, Al Rumaihi said shoppers can expect the introduction of several fashion brands that will be exclusive to City Centre Bahrain, including internationally renowned The North Face for all activewear and outdoor sports gear accessories, the traditional ethnic women’s fashion brand Khaadi, upcoming fashion retailer R&B, streetwear brand CCC, trendy fine leather footwear brand Verona Shoes, and the fashionable streetwear brand Converse.

Customers will soon be able to indulge in the scents inspired by the tradition and ingredients of the East at Oud Elite, in addition to getting pampered at renowned hair dressing brand Toni & Guy, or indulging in natural ingredients and ancient Eastern beauty traditions at Rituals. Lifestyle brands Tommy Hilfiger and Aldo have relocated into pominent locations to uplift the customers’ shopping experience, he explained.   
Al Rumaihi said City Centre Bahrain now delivers an unparalleled shopping experience with new fashion stores including American upscale brands Kate Spade and Cole Haan.

Also found exclusively at City Centre Bahrain is the popular German fashion brand for young women Orsay and the modest women’s clothing line at Leem. Aspirational and unique jewelry can be found at Jawhara Jewellery, while watch enthusiasts can upgrade their collections with an elegant timepiece from Rado & Tissot,, he noted.

Joining the mall’s high-end fashion offerings earlier this year are Emporio Armani for luxurious Italian clothing, shoes, and accessories for men and women, and Charriol for hand-crafted timepieces, fine jewellery and accessories, he added.

City Centre Bahrain’s diverse dining scene has expanded in 2018 with a variety of new F&B outlets including Tortilla, serving up classic California-style burritos and tacos.

Last month, the mall introduced another new exclusive outlet - Cicolatti Italiani, the first Italian restaurant format completely dedicated to the world of chocolate.

"Make sure to stop by Jamal Showaiter Sweets located in the Souq area for a taste of traditional Bahraini delicacies, said an excited Al Rumaihi.

"For parents seeking birthday gifts or family treats, be spoilt for choice at ItsImagical or treat your little girl to a special doll from American Girl. Shop at iSTYLE and explore the world of electronics and accessories," he stated.

Opened earlier this year to meet all the health and wellness needs of customers is Dr Nutrition and opening soon in 2019 for all eyecare requirements is Eye Zone.

City Centre Bahrain continues to cater to interior design shoppers with the debut of The Home Store and recently renovated Home Centre, providing a wide selection of fine and affordable furniture and décor items, said the top official.

Brimming with thoughtfully-designed lifestyle, health, beauty and home décor accessories is the recently opened Yoyoso. Shoppers looking for the perfect pillow or mattress can find everything they need for a perfect night’s rest at Tempur, he stated.

“The diversity of new outlets at City Centre Bahrain addresses all of the fashion, interiors, wellness, and dining needs of Bahrain and the Eastern Region’s shoppers, with more brands to launch in the coming months; we look forward to welcoming visitors to experience these new offerings under one roof at City Centre Bahrain,” added Al Rumaihi.-TradeArabia News Service
