Al Manchar Mall to be demolished?!

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

i learned from desert girl blog that almanshar mall will be soon demolished - the 4 year old mall which hosts old souvenir shops will simply disappear and another mall will rise at the same place.

a friend told me that there's more to the story than what meets the eye - as you may know these souvenir shops were there before the mall and there was some kind of a deal when almanshar was erected and their rents did not change much - may be the only way to raise rents is by getting rid of these shops through a demolition project.

but i'm not buying this story, it is quite expensive to demolish a mall and erect another, is the exercise worth the return on investment?

the crocs outlet at alkout is so colourful and neat you feel you're stepping into a candy shop, except for the plastic smell of the comfy shoes - if you happen to be there, ask the salesman to show you the biggest crocs shoes in the world hidden in the storeroom, truly amazing!
