Our New Local Hypermarché

With little fanfare, Géant opened its new hypermarket at Ibn Battuta Mall yesterday. Yeehaa! We decided to take a stroll down to have a look in the evening. Passing my car on the way out, I noticed that it was sporting an exceedingly squished-looking tyre. Hmmm. However, our stroll to the mall took about 20 minutes (possibly a bit far to walk back from with a few tonnes of shopping). Géant itself was splendid, as hypermarkets always are. It has everything you would expect from such a place, and the layout is almost identical to Carrefour.

The mall itself was half-open. It won't open fully until April 21. But we had a wander round, and were duly impressed. We found a plan of the place that listed all the shops and their locations. Apart from Géant, there will be an MMI (booze shop), a Magrudy's (bookshop), and lots of other good stuff. So we will never need to leave Jebel Ali again!
