EGYPT – Majid Al Futtaim, the shopping mall, communities, retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa and Asia, has launched its free “Click and Collect” service across its four shopping malls in Egypt.
The newly launched “click and collect” service is aimed to reinvent shopping experiences in the country by offering customers more convenience and choice, further addressing the rise in demand for online services.
The service enables customers to shop online and collect their purchases from select stores at any of Majid Al Futtaim’s shopping malls in Egypt, namely; Mall of Egypt, City Centre Almaza, City Centre Alexandria and City Centre Maadi.
For customers looking to order from their favourite food and beverage outlets without dining in, they can place their order through the Via Drive-Thru application and pick it up from designated locations in a quick and hassle-free process.
