just recently, i was able to visit mall of dhahran, a 1,000,000 sq. feet single storey shopping mall. i considered it as a ‘paradise’ to shoppers for it offers a range of retail international stores. almost all the stores were on sale the day i was there, offering up to 70% off on some items. armed with a few riyals (haha!) i started my “bargain hunting” . .
i never realized until i checked my watch that i have walked for about four hours already and i have not even finished checking the other stores. one thing i noticed was some of the stores have no fitting rooms (like the gap) and all the sales people were all men (even on lingerie stores!), the shops also closes during prayer time so you just have to patiently wait till it gets done.
