A couple of newsstands sell essentials before Security. Once through Passport Control, the departure retail space has around 30 outlets across the 2 concourses where you can shop for everything from exclusive fashion brands, to designer perfume and cosmetics, from toys and wooden craftwork to cigars and Turkish Delights. Gold bars are even on sale here. The stores tend to be clustered along the centre of the terminal, with dining areas at either end. Look out for the raffle run by Dubai Duty Free at both concourses; tickets are expensive but are limited to only a small number of a thousand or so, giving you excellent odds to win a luxury car or motorbike.
