Roger Surgay, Director of Beauty Outlet added: “As one of the fastest-growing beauty retailers in the UK, ICON Outlet’s offer of premium urban shopping combined with the unique arena experience at The O2, was something that really spoke to the Beauty Outlet brand. The high-volumes of consumers who visit The O2 day-to-day was a huge factor in attracting us. At Beauty Outlet our vision is simple: to deliver the widest choice of beauty products available at the most competitive prices and we look forward to welcoming gig-goers and music lovers in store, to shop for something that’s going to complete their look for an evening in the arena, as well as the cross-section of shoppers, from local Londoners to international tourists, who visit ICON Outlet for the leading shopping offer.”
