Battle hots up for shoppers as Tilal Development Company announces Muscat Grand Mall expansion

Information about planned OMR 50 million (US $130 million) expansion released weeks after Majid Al Futtaim (MAF) Group announces plans to redevelop Muscat City Centre mall.


Tilal Development Company has announced it is to invest 50 million Omani Riyals (US $130 million) in expanding facilities at Muscat Grand Mall which opened last year within Oman's first mixed retail and residential development, the Tilal Complex.

The expansion will add 30,000 square metres of floor space to the shopping centre and increase the number of retail units from 125 to 250.
According to Tilal Development board member, Engineer Abdul Rahman Barham, the programme of investment is being implemented with the objectives of "raising the profile of the mall" and "creating a world class shopping and entertainment destination".

Muscat Grand Mall general manager, Hassan Jaboub, describes the mall as a "lifestyle destination"; echoing recent comments from Majid Al Futtaim (MAF) Group, owners and operators of the competing Muscat City Centre mall, that shopping trips are being viewed increasingly as outings for the whole family.
Earlier this month, MAF Group announced a significant expansion of retail and leisure facilities at Muscat City Centre and a sister mall in Qurum.
