Despite a warning of an oversupply of retail space from the Middle East Council of Shopping Centres, along with the tightening of consumer spending, the Dubai Outlet Mall has announced expansion plans.  In a city where being the first individual to purchase the latest item at full price is actually a badge of honour worn proudly, what will this mean for the same retailers in other malls? Is this the start of a flood of budget stores invading Dubai?
