New market in Dubai to sell second hand furniture and white goods

The opening dates for the used furniture market and scrap market are yet to be announced

Dubai is getting a new market for reselling second-hand furniture and white goods along with a scrap market that will offer used building materials.

The two markets in Warsan have been handed over to Dubai Municipality, and the opening dates are yet to be announced.

The Dh77m used furniture and utensils market will be located in Nadd Al Sheba-3 across 28,800 square meters and will house 120 shops, an external plaza, restaurant area for selling snacks, market administration office, service buildings, toilets and other facilities.

The scrap market, which was built at a cost of Dh100 m, is 43,000 square meters and is comprised of a main building housing 71 shops as well as fast food outlets, a mosque for men and women, 53 outdoor display outlets, 80 parking lots for trucks, and 760 parking lots.

The project aims to gather all used furniture, electrical appliances and household utensil showrooms in one location.

Hussain Lootah, director general of Dubai Municipality, inspected the new markets on Sunday.

“The Scrap Market for Building Materials is the realization of the vision of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, to preserve the country’s resources, to build a green economy and establish an environmentally sustainable city as well as to apply the highest standards of quality and excellence, in order to preserve the environment and society,” said Mr Lootah.
