City Centre not opening soon...
The Gulf Times has this update on the City Center mall closure :
City Center Doha, which has been closed since June 15, is unlikely to reopen in the next few days, sources said. It is understood that the authorities are working on some major redesigning on the floor plans of the complex on the instructions of the Directorate of the Civil Defence and hence an early reopening is ruled out, they said. As per the revised plans, some major modifications would be made on some of the shops located on the top level of the complex.
And QLer azamat provides this piece of satire on the impact of the closure of the major malls in Qatar :
The tiny state of Qatar has declared a state of emergency due to severe shortage of shopping malls, with officials saying that some residents have been restricted to fortnightly shopping trips.
