City Centre Sharjah is set to elevate the shopping and entertainment experience for tourists and residents in the Emirate as it enters the final phase of redevelopment this month.
The Dh260 million revamp of the mall is 75 per cent of the way towards completion, and visitors can look forward to an array of exciting retail and leisure additions, including a massive, 12-screen, high-tech VOX Cinemas multiplex that will change the viewing experience for all movie fans.
The city's holistic shopping and entertainment destination will expand to include 30 new lifestyle stores, many more F&B options and leisure activities for a great time out with the family every day. And for stress free parking, City Centre Sharjah will also be expanding the parking lot by adding 700 spaces. 
City Centre Sharjah will be home to the largest VOX Cinemas multiplex in the emirate when the new phase opens. Screening a wide variety of Hollywood, Bollywood and Arabic-language films, the 12-screen, high-tech multiplex will boast a vivid digital image projection system, Dolby Atmos and 7.1 multidimensional surround sound. Moviegoers can choose from the MAX experience with its super-sized screen and increased seating capacity, GOLD by Rhodes - the new luxury in-cinema, gourmet dining concept - or KIDS which is designed especially for little guests.
And for visitors looking to round off the evening with a scrumptious meal, they can choose from the new food and beverage outlets, including McDonald's for a grab-and-go meal or Nando's, Chili's and the homegrown Indian restaurant chain Gazebo for a casual sit-down dinner.
Among the 25 fashion and lifestyle brands extending their lines to the mall are Annabelle that will appeal to trendy shoppers; the lingerie boutique Nayomi and Pakistani ladieswear label Khaadi, which weaves modernity with modest styles. Other names include Carpisa, an Italian producer of premium luggage, perfume house Flormar and budget furniture store Home Box.
For added convenience, Etisalat, UAE Exchange and Commercial Bank of Dubai will also be available. Healthcare services are an important part of any community hub, particularly one as centrally located as City Centre Sharjah. Making its debut in the emirate will be City Centre Clinic, Majid Al Futtaim's multidisciplinary health centre, which is staffed by experienced doctors and nurses of various specialisms.
New eyewear stores Rivoli EyeZone and Yateem Optician will both offer optometry (vision health) alongside the latest designer frames and sunglasses. A branch of leading chain Life Pharmacy will also open at the mall.
The redevelopment is part of owner-operator Majid Al Futtaim's planned Dh30 billion investment in the UAE by 2026. As well as investing in existing assets, the company plans to open 10 malls, 28 cinemas and 40 Carrefour hypermarkets by late 2020. A residential initiative, gated community Al Zahia, will span more than a million square metres and is being developed jointly with the Sharjah government.
