Salwa Road welcomes Parco Mall

A new mall is due to open in the Maamoura area, along Salwa Road, on Friday.

Called Parco Mall, organizers are calling the multi-floor structure Qatar’s first “green” mall, partly due to a vertical garden inside, which boasts some 2,000 tropical plants, as well as an aquarium.

What else is there? A food court, a flagship Food World grocery store, bank and money exchange, laundry, travel agency, pharmacy, clothing stores, and even a book store.

Which exact stores will be there, has not yet been announced. But they promise to launch with a week-long festival of fun for the whole family.

How different this shopping centre will really be obviously remains to be seen. If you go, let us know what you think, and share your pictures.
