Default Ladies! And Gents who enjoy shopping....

I've got a (bleurgh) 4 day conference in Abu Dhabi in a month's time. Might as well hit the shops in the evening as (a) I'm not a party animal and (b) I live in Hicksville

So... as all the AD malls websites are "Under Maintenance" (should I be worried?!), can you let me know where I can find the following stores, if they are in AD?
  • Boots
  • Ecco shoes
  • M&S
  • Decathlon (or similar with sports goods & swim stuff for kids)
  • Massimo Dutti

thanks!

No idea about AD... but they are all here in Dubai so they should be in AD.... maybe...

AD Mall and Marina Mall have most if not all those stores.

Feel free to send my fee to the usual account

When I was there the only boots was in al wadha mall.

I don't think there is a Decathlon in Abu Dhabi...

There is an M&S in what I believe is called the M&S building near the corniche off Hamdan street.

Can't help with Massimo Dutti and Ecco but Marina Mall is your best bet.

There's a new M&S in Marina Mall (where Ikea used to be). Massimo Dutti is in pretty much all the malls, as is Ecco I believe.

"Excuse me - do you know where I can buy condoms?"

"No I don't - but have you tried Boots.......?"

[insert one of three popular punchlines]

snigger

well, if you really want to know, it's for the No7 anti-wrinkle creams

looks like I'll try Al Wahda on the first day, Marina on the second day, and AD mall (I'm assuming this means AbuDhabi mall....) on the third!

Sorted. Now I don't have to talk to other people every evening....
