According to some friends, the huge buildings next to ABC Dbayyeh are movie theaters set to open soon.
The first thing that came to my mind is that ABC will be needing more parking lots, so hopefully they thought of building underground parking.
The second thing is that Le Mall is opening meters away from ABC Dbayyeh, so imagine the traffic we’re gonna have there during holidays.
We can no longer trust those leaks as they ve got the sky bar opening date wrong thereby disappointing millions of Lebanese eager to stand 3 hours in line before paying 500$ min charges for half a seat on the bar.
I have a sneaking suspicion that right after they are done with the cinema complex they will start with a multy story car park on the Spinneys side.
the thing about ABC Dbayeh is that since i can remember in the mid 80s, the place has been under constant development. it would be interesting to see if someone has photos of all the stages. but it’s always been changing even now, they are adding supports throughout the basement all the way to the top, i think it’s for an extra floor up top…
the name of the place should have become
ABCDEFGHIJKLMN….to be continued…
i have a feeling they will invent letters and will never get to Z
Interesting fact: Did you know that in the 50s when ABC was started it the letters used to stand for “Always Better and Cheaper”?
I don’t think that applies nowadays though 🙂
ElHaddad, i always thought it stood for the ABCs of shopping…
a funny fact: a few years back the building a km or less down the road that is now Boutique Mall, was called DEF…
get it? ABC….DEF…. so stupid
Are you sure about that ElHaddad? I’ve always wondered myself about what it means.
I remember this place DEF .. indeed stupid.
@Najib I didn’t get the Sky Bar thing wrong =P They changed the date! I just got the lil’wayne thing wrong, and I’m trying to atone for it ='(
@ElHaddad, wow, hahaha, I’m sure a lot of “tantettes” will no longer go to ABC if they knew what it stands for!
Your mistake is unforgivable Gino but we will spare you the punishment this time 🙂
Take it easy on Gino or imma put a hurt on you!
Yes guys I’m sure of that. My girlfriend worked with ABC for a while and the management gave her a presentation about the history of ABC. It was started by three AUB graduates in the 50s and they chose the letters as abbreviations for “Always Better and Cheaper”. They later sold it to Robert Fadel’s father.. and now the three letters no longer stand for anything 😛
