I received an invitation from Alshaya to attend the pre-opening tour of Grand Avenue on Monday 5th of November 2012. I was really excited, we’ve been all waiting for this moment for years, anticipating how it will really look like. Left my baby with my dad (he’s a great Grandfather), changed my clothes, took my camera & headed to The Avenues. Reached there around 8:25 am. Media & blogs were there having breakfast at Bresserie. Ordered black coffee as I’m not allowed & waited for my other blogging mates to arrive.
We were all very excited … At 9:00 am sharp, the tour started, the area of Phase III is really spacious & full of sun … Loved it. The decoration is marvelous, as if you were not in Kuwait. We were introduced to their new shops; The cheesecake Factory, COS, Garret Popcorn Shops, The Texas Roadhouse, Harvey Nickols, Williams Sonoma, Sarar, Jo Malone, Victoria Secret/Pink, West Elm, Jack Wills, & Teavana.
More of Alshaya previously opened stores have opened /will also open in Phase III; H&M, Foot Locker Kids, Payless Kids, Coast, Bath & Body Works, Starbucks, Potbelly, American Eagle, Next Kids, Milano, The Body Shop, Boots, Pinkberry, Pizza Express, Mothercare, River Island Kids, Claire’s , M.A.C., Vision Express, Shake Shack, & Castania Nut Boutique.
You should definitely visit Grand Avenue … you’ll enjoy your time to the max
