Today was the grand opening of the new phase at the Avenues. Media events aren't as bad as I thought they would be. My feet are killing me from walking for four hours but it was a great experience. It officially opened at 10 am but we had a media tour at 9 am. I must say it is really beautiful and the sunlight coming in made it so bright. Only a few stores are open but I saw Red Lobster and Olive Garden upstairs and I can't wait for them to open.
Victoria's Secret is now open and they have bras! In the states they have 2 for $18.00, here they are 2 for 18 KD, it seems they just take the prices from the states and turn it into KD. For all you Cheesecake Factory lovers it's finally here. Texas Roadhouse is supposed to open on November 10, there will be a press release about it's opening.
Mr. Al-Shaya was there to cut the ribbon for Harvey Nichols and Cheesecake Factory.
