Let’s spread some happiness 🥳
18 Sep 2019
We all love a bit of happiness. Happy self, happy thoughts, happy friends, happy holidays, happy moments and even happy pets. Well, what about happy shops? Our first mission here at SmartCitti is to find and share the happiest store within Dubai’s mahoosive shopping scene, so that you can indulge in your happiest shopping experience. But hey, why is that important? And what makes a shop a ‘happy shop’?
SmartCitti is all about happiness and happy experiences. Being happy is something we all aspire to, whether that be in our health, our work or our social life. The numerous benefits of happiness include tranquility, self-confidence and success (not to mention a longer life - who wouldn’t want that?). Dubai itself is a hub of multiculturalism, diversity and community spirit, making it distinct from other cities throughout the world. This gem of the UAE continues to show that the happiness of its residents and community spirit drives the buzzing atmosphere and quality of life in Dubai - and we couldn’t agree more.
Happiness encompasses many aspects of life, and a huge part of many of our lives in Dubai is.. yes, you guessed it.. SHOPPING! Wouldn’t it be great to be able to search for the happiest places to shop, dine and be entertained in the city? Verified ratings from others experiencing, sharing and searching for happy spots throughout Dubai? That’s where our first mission comes in; to find the happiest store in Dubai.
So how can you get involved?
Had a happy visit to a shop? Leave a happiness rating on the app and tell us why you loved that particular shop, and why others would love it too. It’s really that simple. Maybe you’re unsure as to what constitutes a ‘happy shop’. The answer: any reason which makes you happy, makes your visit more enjoyable and makes you want to visit again.
Here are some reasons our own SmartCitti team would leave a happy rating at a shop they visited in one of Dubai’s many malls:
- A huge sale with some great bargains
- Sales staff went above and beyond
- A wide variety of products, colours and sizes
- Vibrant atmosphere
- Freebies and free samples
- Amazing discounts and a great loyalty program
- A focus on sustainability
- Stroller and wheelchair-friendly
- Caters to kids
- New tech to help you shop easier
And there’s plenty more reasons a shop can be hailed as a ‘happy shop’ - let’s give them the recognition they deserve and make more Dubai shoppers happy. Have fun shopping and rating!
