Almost all of the Dubai’s malls have a hypermarket or a supermarket and they are mostly located on the ground floor. You might have noticed that why does the mall stay opened for so late? This is because the super/hyper markets stay opened a bit longer than the other shops in the mall so the mall also stays opened.

Supermarkets do not sell beer, wines or any alcohal drinks. The only two companies licensed in Dubai to sell alcohal are MMI and african & eastern. Most of these shops are situated near the spinneys and if want to buy the alcohal beverages you need an alcohal license if you dont have a license it will be illegal to buy these beverages. although pork is illegal and is prohibited by islam people do eat and sell them in the parts where non-muslims reside.
