Whats going on with Shaab?

Post by Mark

I’m heading back to Kuwait in a couple of days and it looks like I missed out on a bit of drama while I was away. Shaab Park, Sultan Center Shaab, the football fields and everything else in that block have been closed down and cordoned off by a fence. Whats going on? Sultan Center Shaab was my goto supermarket so I can’t imagine not having it there anymore.

    I read in Alrai newspaper that the land is rented by the businesses on it. The land is owned by Touristic Enterprises Company and they got a court evacuation order served to the businesses.

    Came back from vacation this morning, no food in the house so wandered the short walk to find the above signs! So this afternoon I ventured into using their online service and I have to say I was impressed.

      I always order online from TSC. It’s pretty good. Obviously, it doesn’t have EVERYTHING that’s at Sultan Center but it’s a great service and they’re always on time with delivery (sometimes they are early and call you to let you know hehe)

    Could this mean Legoland could be coming to Kuwait?

    It’s owned by TEC. And they won legal battle with the leaser CMCC to get it back, along with shaab park. Everything will open again once TEC lease the plot again to whoever win the bid.

    i can confirm that it is a court evac sentence being served.

    the contract ended back in 2012 and they all remained, something along these lines.

    Heard from TSC staff that they will reopen on Sunday. Not sure how accurate this info is, but will keep my fingers crossed!
