TUNISIA. Tunisia's largest shopping mall yet will be opening on 29 September, anchored by a 12,000 square metre GĂ©ant hypermarket from the French Casino group. 

The mall is situated at the beginning of the Bizerte highway, just after the Ennahli national park, on the outskirts of Tunis.

Tunis City will include 80 other brand-name outlets, eight fast food locations and a food court with a capacity of 600 seats, two restaurants and a leisure centre including an open air play space for children.

Situated near Ennahli national park, at the beginning of the Bizerte highway on the outskirts of the capital, the new mall is expectd to ease the pressure by shopppers on the current shopping centres in Tunis and its suburbs. The parking area will initially accomodate up to 2,500 cars and is already scheduled for expansion.

Apart from the local supermarket chains around the country, there are there are currently two franchised supermarkets in the Tunis area. Carrefour opened a hypermarket in Tunis in April 2001 and it has greatly increased the shopping options in the capital. The Tunis Carrefour is attached to a food court and a small gallery of clothing and other specialty stores. Other supermarket chains include Touta, Monoprix, and Bonprix. 

 With the growth of the purchasing power of Tunisia's growing middle class society, there is high consumer demand for modern shopping centres.
