Qatar’s first Spar supermarket to open at Tawar Mall

A new under-construction mall in Qatar hopes to woo shoppers with a Dutch hypermarket and a family entertainment area designed as a mock giant toy factory, operators have said.

During a press conference today, developers of Tawar Mall announced that Qatar-based Al Siddiqi Holding has been tasked with designing a 4,302-square-meter “Kaboom” entertainment center.

When finished, it will feature video games, theme park rides, a chocolate factory as well as a karaoke booth with a 20,000-song library, officials said.
