Finding a shop for rent in Dubai
In recent years, Dubai has shot to popularity as a dynamic tourist hub but before the malls and bright lights, Dubai was a famous and important trading port. That tradition continues today and is why more and more companies and businesses are choosing to set up branches and headquarters in Dubai.
Shopping and Dubai go hand in hand and the number of shops in Dubai and the diversity in their wares has grown exponentially in the last 2 decades. With the launch of various free zones and the relaxation of property ownership laws across the emirate, the number of available commercial properties for rent in Dubai has never been higher. If you choose to rent a shop in a free zone then you do not require a local sponsor as part of the process.
Provided you operate with the correct trade license and within the laws of Dubai and the UAE, you can rent a shop to provide a wide range of services and/or products. Dubai is a vast oasis of commercial opportunity so there’s lots of shops available for rent across the emirate. Commercial leases for shops tend to run for at least 2 years but can be negotiated with the landlord.
Much of Dubai’s initial trading began by the creek and it is here where a great many shops for rent in Deira can be found. It’s hard to single out any one popular area since business can be established just about anywhere.
