McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Málaga in Spain celebrates its first anniversary

Since its opening, the Centre has received more than 3 million visitors. In 2020, new premium and luxury brands such as Prada, Burberry, Armani, ECOALF and Furla, among others, opened its doors in the centre.

McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Málaga has just celebrated its first anniversary after having received more than three million visitors since its opening on 13 February 2020. For the Centre, the balance of this first year is positive, despite the pandemic, both for the influx of visitors, as well as for the growth of firms present in it and the high rates of customer satisfaction.

Since its reopening in June last year, the Centre has continued its grow, incorporating new international brands such as Prada, Burberry, Armani and Furla, as well as the Spanish brands Bimba y Lola, Ecoalf and Silbon. Some of them have opened for the first time a commercial space in the south of Spain. These new firms complete the Centre’s brand mix and increase its attractiveness as a shopping destination for national and international customers. 

It is worth highlighting the Centre’s ability to adapt to the “new normal”, in which society has been immersed since June

The safety and well-being of customers and employees has always been and will always be McArthurGlen’s top priority, and it has been demonstrated during this first year of operations.

The Centre offers a unique shopping experience in the region thanks to its outdoor spaces that ensure the safety of visitors. McArthurGlen maintains strict health and safety protocols guaranteed by the Bureau Veritas “Shop Safer” certification, which ensures that the Centre complies with all necessary measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

After a year full of uncertainty, McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Málaga is looking to the future with optimism with the arrival of new brands this year and the gradual recovery of tourism.

Javier Mendizábal, Centre Manager of McArthurGlen Málaga commented:

 “We offer a unique shopping destination concept in the region. We believe that our offer can contribute to the evolution of the tourism model of the Costa del Sol, through a selection of the best premium and luxury brands with year-round savings of up to 70% in an exclusive environment such as Málaga, which will help attract a higher quality tourism and where visitors feel 100% safe. This supposes a positive impact for the region with the generation of new jobs, since our opening and in the future”. He also emphasizes how “Little by little we hope to return to normality, recover international tourism and be able to continue offering the best shopping experience to both local and international customers, with all the security measures”.
