The long-awaited Crater shopping mall is scheduled to be inaugurated tomorrow 7 November. This mall is considered the largest in the city of Aden and the first of its kind with a capital investment exceeding 400 million Yemeni Riyals.
Mr Jalal Mohammed Saleh, Vice Manager of the project told the Yemen Times in a press statement that the project occupies an area exceeding 1,800 square meters and includes 50 shops selling various products and services ranging from textile products, perfumes, accessories, computer equipment and family products.
Work on the project lasted for 4 years until it was completed and this project aims at providing the locals with their needs all in one place without the need to go to crowded popular markets.
The shopping mall also adds a decorating touch to the city especially that it is beautifully designed with a unique architectural style. Mr. Jalal said that the project was possible mainly due to the leadership's efforts in maintaining a healthy environment for investment. He also expressed his appreciation for the positive role of Dr. al-Shuaibi, the governor of Aden in making the project possible.
