Who are we?
We were founded in 2014 to acquire existing outlet centres across Europe. Our vision is to create premium shopping destinations, and offer best-in class, beautifully local, shopping experiences for our guests and brand partners. We are here to redefine the outlet shopping experience!
Guided by our three R’s elevation strategy – remerchandising, remodelling and remarketing – we ensure that our premium fashion outlets are destinations attracting guests from all over the world.
By bringing together an exceptional mix of international and local premium brands, we have created unexpected and unforgettable shopping experiences, whilst also paving the way for sustainable shopping.
The company has been structured to enable us to react quickly to acquisition opportunities that may arise in the market.
