MGM’s Ramadhan Souq brings SMEs and home businesses under one roof

The first ever Ramadhan Souq which brings together several SMEs and home businesses has now opened at the Muscat Grand Mall and will run until Eid al Fitr.  Accompanied by a wide variety of family entertainment, the souq was a fitting tribute to the holy month and will be open every day from 9 pm to midnight.
The souq is comprised of a multitude of brands specialising in anything from confectionary, dates and honey, to natural body-care products. Additionally, the souq will include a special tent where visitors will be served coffee with dates and fresh Jalab juice. It will also consist of a special area for kids’ activities, such as painting and balloon modelling. Al Shabab FM will also be broadcasted live from inside the souq.
Commenting on the launch of the souq, Hassan Jaboub, the CEO of Muscat Grand Mall said, “The main aim of the Ramadhan Souq, which has been designed as a group of traditional Omani tents, is to provide families with an outing to enjoy shopping at special prices. And at the same time it allows them to enjoy free entertainment activities. Better yet, the event is an excellent opportunity for SMEs to introduce themselves and showcase their products to the mall’s visitors; which is in line with our social objectives here at MGM.”
Right from its opening day, on the first day of Ramadhan, the souq has seen huge attendance from mall visitors; all of whom enjoyed the delicious taste of the Omani halwa and coffee while shopping at the various stores.
The organisers of the event expect the number to increase over the course of the second week of Ramadhan, as many families who prefer spending the first week at their hometowns will be back in Muscat.
