They will open the first Ferrari store in Kuwait at the SoKu district in the Avenues Mall Phase III. The store will be selling genuine Ferrari goods such as watches, clothes and jackets, caps, gifts, shoes, even headsets, head phones and dock stations. I guess fans obsessed with Ferrari supercars will love it, though I hope the prices won’t be sky high otherwise I’m totally fine with fake Ferrari goods from China.
A friend sent me photo for Tory Burch opened at the Grand Avenue. This is their first boutique in Kuwait, it’s an American fashion brand for women and offer elegant women’s clothing, shoes and accessories for supposedly affordable prices when compared to other luxury brands.
Today I had a sneak peek tour to check the progress of the remaining districts that will open shortly at the Avenues Phase III, the Grand Avenue was indeed impressive but I think with the new districts the Avenues will become one of the ultimate shopping destinations in Kuwait and GCC. So buckle up and let’s see what is waiting for us at Phase III.
Prestige District: I took a short walk around it, it’s a Salhiya-like shopping mall yet with bigger scale, so those who seek luxury (Kash5a in Kuwaiti) will like it. it’s built on two-levels with a nice dome in the center and there will be valet parking and hands-free shopping services. Some of the high-end brands boutiques include;
SoKu: District: It stands for South of Kuwait, they said it’s youth-oriented; a funky place influenced from New York’s bohemian Soho district. It will include Millions of Milkshakes, iHop, Kevingston, and cafe’s and restaurants. I overheard they are offering lower rate for leasing to help small businesses, though I’ve to confirm that.
I was exiting The Avenues Mall through 4th Ring Road and saw Toys “R” Us has opened their 2nd branch in Shuweikh across the street from Safat Al Ghanim near Sultan Wholesale Center, this is their biggest toys store in Kuwait with an area of 25,000 sq. meter on three levels. It reminds me of of Kids R Us back in the 80′s, I remember it was like a heaven back then.
The Arabic translation for Toys “R” Us felt kinda funny.
I was looking for comfortable training suit at adidas store and saw they just released new luxury sportswear line in collaboration with Porsche Design. Their products looked cool especially the sneakers but sadly prices were on the high side for some of the stuff. Porsche Design line is now available at all adidas stores across Kuwait.
