Mall of Oman will become Majid Al Futtaim’s fifth and largest shopping and entertainment destination in Oman, with an impressive 140,000 sqm of retail space. Comprising over 350 retail outlets including 55 dining options (from restaurants to cafes), the mall will house a range of unique entertainment and leisure offerings for all ages. These include, Oman’s largest VOX Cinemas with 15 screens, the first GOLD experience in Oman, a 3D cinema, KIDS and IMAX experiences; the largest indoor snow park in the Sultanate spanning over 14,000 sqm; and the largest Magic Planet in the country, which features award-winning rides, games and attractions for the whole family.

As a premier shopping destination, the mall will feature world-class brands from leading regional retail companies such as Max Fashion and Centrepoint from the Landmark group; Hollister from Majid Al Futtaim; Marks & Spencer from Al Futtaim Group; LC Waikiki, R&B, and SMYK from the Apparel group; and brands by the Al Shamsi group.

In addition, Mall of Oman will include famous outlets like Homes R Us, Matalan, Sharaf DG, and a 12,200 sqm Carrefour Hypermarket, as well as new and exclusive concepts such as Dior Boutique, Under Armour, Decathlon, 2XL Furniture, Lefties, L’Occitane en Provence, New Yorker and more.

Husam Al Mandhari – Director of Shopping malls in Oman at Majid Al Futtaim Properties said: “Through the launch of Mall of Oman, customers will be immersed in engaging shopping and entertainment experiences. And for the first time ever, the largest indoor snow park, VOX Cinemas and Magic Planet will all be found in one location, bringing everyone closer to creating lasting memories. We also look forward to pairing our incredible Tamheen graduates with our latest retail partners in time for the grand opening, providing new job opportunities to many.”

The mall will play a significant role in supporting local communities by enhancing the Sultanate’s retail and entertainment offerings for both residents and tourists. It will also boost the local economy by creating 3,500 jobs.

As part of its economic contribution to the country, Majid Al Futtaim will also support with the upskilling of Omani nationals by preparing them for a potential career in the retail industry through “Tamheen” — an initiative in collaboration with The Retail Academy. The academy will provide numerous opportunities such as screenings and recruitment events, tailor-made training programs, along with after-care services, counseling, and mentorship for new Omani hires.
