Customers rush at bank:: Emirates Today

Image hosted by


Mass confusion surrounded the 8am opening of a branch of the Emirates Bank yesterday as about 500 Saudi Arabian men attempted to snap up subscriptions for one of the UAE’s largest initial public offering. “When I came to work this morning at 7.30am, there were as many as 500 men lined up,” said a senior employee from the head office of Emirates Bank who had been assigned to the Mankhool Road branch. The Arab employee, who requested anonymity, said about 95 per cent of the customers queuing up were from Saudi Arabia. This was confirmed by a senior branch employee and by Saudi customer Abdul Aziz Al Bakheet, who said he had been queuing up for a subscription application form since 7am.
Must be a great deal. I hope they get their money's worth.

UPDATE: The Muscatis has more.
