Wembley Park’s London Designer Outlet (LDO) will see two major openings in the next few weeks with on-trend brand Champion set to open its first UK outlet store there while Beauty Outlet will also open a large shop.
London Designer Outlet had a strong Christmas period, illustrating the strength of the outlet model, despite the weak UK retail economy, and also underlining the growing appeal of Wembley as a shopping destination
It has been five years since London Designer Outlet opened its doors in Wembley, and the outlet centre continues to be a bright spot in UK retail while the high street struggles to cope with online competition.
The London Designer Outlet has announced its 18th consecutive quarter of sales growth, shrugging off the jitters in the retail industry as high street retailers continued to struggle with footfall over Easter.
Four districts, 40 new independent shops and restaurants, and spaces for artists’ studios will transform Wembley Park in London into a major new destination as part of one of Europe’s largest urban regeneration projects.
The expansion of Bicester Village and McArthurGlen's latest sales report show just how strong out-of-town outlet malls are at present. But a new report says urban schemes are where future growth is going to come from.
