The Sharjah Shopping Promotions, organized by the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI), has ended on a high note, with sales soaring beyond AED200 ($54.4 million) million, a 30% increase from previous records.

The city-wide event culminated on Sunday at Sahara Center with a celebratory ceremony where Mohammad Qasim Hassouni from Iraq became the envy of all as he drove away in a brand-new Infiniti car, the grand prize in the final draw.

The raffle draw was a celebration of winning as five lucky individuals walked away with five tourism packages, and 13 more were awarded vouchers ranging from AED2,500 to AED10,000. Shopping was elevated to new heights with discounts reaching 75% on top international brands.

Ibrahim Rashid Al Jarwan, Director of Economic Relations and Marketing at SCCI, stressed that this year’s Sharjah shopping promotions were successful by all standards, marked by high sales and a strong turnout from visitors and tourists from around the world. This was due to the Chamber’s innovative approach in partnership with strategic partners to enhance the experience of residents and visitors during the event.

Al Jarwan attributed the uniqueness and continued success of the Sharjah shopping promotions to the strong partnership between the government and private sectors in Sharjah.

Jamal Saeed Bouzanjal, Director of the SCCI Media Department, stated that the success of this year’s promotions is yet another testament to the Chamber’s continuous efforts to drive economic development in Sharjah through programs and initiatives, adding that the event was a prime opportunity for local shopping centres and shops to grow their businesses and boost revenue.

Meanwhile, Hana Al Suwaidi, Head of the SCCI’s Festival and Shows Department, said that during the Sharjah Shopping Promotions, the Emirate was alive with a mix of entertainment, festivities, and unique events, solidifying its reputation as a family-friendly tourist destination that caters to all family members’ needs.
