For cheap shopping go to Lulu Hyper or Safari.

For mid range go to City centre or Landmark.

For really high class (not always) go to Villagio. Be careful with ladies stuff as they can literally rip you off if you are not expert in choosing brands and don't have know how of their make. For classic stuff Souq Waqif is no doubt the best.
