On the 10th of September, the Al Ghurair City store was inaugurated jointly by Mr. Suliman Abdullah Al Ghurair and Mr. Micky Jagtiani amidst a big crowd that gathered in anticipation outside the much awaited launch. The 11,000 sq. feet yin-yang format store retails all Splash popular favorites like ZYNC, Scarlet, Lee Cooper, Nexus and Kappa amongst others.

The RAK store which was launched on 17th September, forms a part of the Centrepoint umbrella and boasts an area of over 16,000 sq. feet. Splash also re-launched its store at the Centrepoint Mall of the Emirates which has also adopted the new yin-yang retail design.

Speaking at one of the launch ceremonies Mr. Raza Beig, CEO, Splash said; "We always strive to achieve as much proximity to our clientele as possible. Splash not only aims at reaching out to larger audiences but also wants to deliver its customers a wider choice. Our collection has always attracted the locals and expatriates alike. This unique store-in-store format at IBN Batutta Mall is a testimony of our strife to continuously breathe innovation and novelty."

"Splash is proud to showcase its collection at three of the UAE's finest community centered locations. With our presence at Ibn Battuta Mall, Al Ghurair City and RAK we will cater to diverse communities that reside in their catchment area. We're sure they'll soon be addicted to the mix of high fashion & great value that Splash has to offer."

Beig continued, "With the launch of these stores, we have definitely put more responsibility on our shoulders to offer a superior retail environment, even better customer service and quality products. With more store launches in the pipeline, Splash sure is heading towards robust growth in the coming future".
