London Designer Outlet, which sits next to Wembley Stadium, enjoyed a 9.2% increase in retail sales in June, July and August compared with the same months in 2018, boosted by the sold-out Spice Girls reunion tour.

Wembley Stadium also hosted concerts from artists including The Who and Pink.
Same-store sales were up 4.8% during the period, and footfall increased by 3% year-on-year, according to information provided by LDO manager Realm to the Evening Standard.
Sue Shepherd, manager of the London Designer Outlet, said: “The summer months have been very busy, with guests travelling from near and far to enjoy aspirational and desirable brands at up to 70% off RRP throughout the year.”
Footwear was the retail category with the highest growth, enjoying a 23% increase in retail sales. Some of the shoe brands housed there include Dr Martens, Kurt Geiger, Vans and Converse.
