Al Hamra Mall is still not open but I saw a comment somewhere that third quarter of 2008 is an expected opening date, although the Al Hamra Mall updated website (alhamramall.com) still insists they're opening in 2007: "Al Hamra Mall Grand Opening: As scheduled Al Hamra Mall will officially open in the third quarter of the year 2007
" says their November 2006 news release, and their About Us page is even more optimistic - "Scheduled to open mid 2007
". The Ras Al Khaimah Spinneys
in the shopping mall opened earlier this year though. They must be lonely ...
Al Hamra Mall is on two floors, will have 150 shops and cover an area of about 38,000 square meters (410,000 square feet) - about one-fifteenth of the size of Mall of the Emirates
in Dubai. Telephone contact is +971-7-2447275.
