Emaar Mall's e-commerce fashion and lifestyle platform, Namshi, a wholly owned subsidiary, recorded sales of AED 258 million (US$ 70 million) for Q1 2021.Namshi's strong performance is credited to its persistent growth in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other GCC countries along with its launch in Qatar in early 2021. Additionally, 117 new brands were launched in Q1 2021, leaving consumers spoilt for choice.
With the worldwide economy and retail industry being impacted by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, Emaar Malls recorded healthy profit margins for Q1 2021, and is witnessing continual recovery across its business units.
