The Avenues Mall has been granted the Gold Award for Best Shopping Centre 2013 under the expansion and design category for the MENA region. The Avenues was awarded this prize by the Middle East and International Shopping Centre Councils, after the mall excelled over the other shopping malls.

The Avenues is among the world’s largest shopping centres, attracting plenty of shoppers in Kuwait.

All these districts have several high, middle range and luxury and elite brands, some of the brands being introduced in Middle East for the first time, apart from several international restaurants and cafes, entertainment centres, jewellery zone, kids edutainment centre, and “The Souk”.

Meanwhile “SoKu” (South Kuwait in short), located on two streets and two floors, embodies the modern shopping and includes leading youth brands, bringing together modern fashion, electronics, sportswear, and art exhibition, apart from famous international and local restaurants and cafes.

The Chairman and Managing Director of Mabanee Co Mohammed Abdulaziz Alshaya, lauding ‘The Avenues’ for its Gold Award for Best Shopping Centre 2013, said that work is also underway to further develop the shopping experience at The Avenues through design and construction of new phases of the project, which will further add value to the project, making it another leading iconic structure worldwide.
